Raleigh Supercourse

Bought her from a guy who spray painted her blue for reasons unknown. Aside from the forks and headset , I've replaced everything on this bike with the intention of performance, efficiency, and durability. It's an early 80s Raleigh Super Course 64.5cm. Reynolds steel. This is my daily driver here in San Luis Obispo and the comfortable geometry paired with the gear ratio make for a quick commuter.

Honestly, it was better at displaying my cheapness/craftiness than it was at deflecting road muck from my rear.

Chyeah, way tall. I thought it was gonna ride like a Cadillac but lo, she's swift. From random paint chips I can tell that it was originally a red/white scheme.
