1967 Raleigh Superbe 3 Speed

I picked this up in early summer 16. It was covered in 50 years of rust, dust and gunk. I re-laced the front wheel with stainless spokes, the rear is next. I haven't reinstalled the chain guard yet. I replaced the original dryed out B72 with a B67.

Frame:
Raleigh 23" equivalent to a modern 58cm.

Fork/Headset:
Raleigh keyed fork. I'm missing the key.

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Raleigh

Pedals:
Raleigh

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Raleigh

Derailleurs/Shifters:
Sturmey Archer with new indicator chain.

Handlebars/Stem:
Raleigh

Saddle/Seatpost:
Raleigh. Brooks saddle B67 single rail. I opted to use BMX single rail guts instead of a newer style post.

Brakes:
Raleigh w/ Fibrax pads. I installed 3 dura-ace cable clips to keep the rear cable organized.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
67 Dyno Hub (it works). Raleigh Pattern 36h rim, stainless spokes, Michelin World Tour. Original Dunlop Air-seal inner tube. The original inner tube never looses pressure unlike new tubes.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
67 Sturmey Archer AW 3 speed. Raleigh Pattern 40h rim, Michelin world Tour.

More Info:
This year model originally came with Dunlop skinwalls. I also like the look of black walls so I'm using them for now. The front light still needs some attention but the dyno hub works. The original chain guard is pretty beat up so don't know if I'll get a replacement or not. Surprisingly fast in 3rd gear. I keep forgetting to bring the air pump before taking pics....

Thanks Simplicated, the old Raleigh has been fun to work on. I see you have an eclectic collection of bikes yourself. Very nice indeed.

Thanks Simplicated. I'll post more as I progress. I got this about a month ago and it looked hopeless until I began cleaning it up.
