1954 Raleigh Superb with Trojan Mini-Motor
I have a few Raleigh Superbs. This is the most superb of them, as it has been restored with no expense spared.
Though a bicycle that makes my blood rush most is always a well-preserved original example with good transfers, one that is restored into showroom condition with a cyclemotor engine attached comes a close second.
To my eye, a restored bicycle without an engine attachment is never as attractive as a motorized one.
A colour co-ordinated engine and frame always stands out.
I bought this as part of a large collection, from someone who’d decided to sell up.
I eventually sold or exchanged the rest but kept this one.
