This superb Raleigh Superbe used to be owned by an ex-military gent who used it as a spare bike in case his other, identical one was off the road.

I assume its limited use is the reason why it’s so well-preserved.

There are dynamo hubs front and rear.

The rear hub is a 1957 Sturmey Archer FG 4 speed with a built-in Dynohub generator.

This is a sturdy bike with a real pre-war feel to it.

I’ve now delivered this bike to France, a part of one of my exchanges with Pat in Paris
