Here's the latest Craigslist find and the latest addition to the stable.
It's a Raleigh Superbe, made in England in -- still guessing here -- the early to mid-70s. Its Sturmey Archer three-speed hub shifts smoothly and all the parts, including the dynamo fork light and the Brooks B72 saddle, appear to be original.
More to come on this beautiful bronze bike, including post-cleaning/restoration photos and a bit of drama.
