Lot 330: A 1950 Raleigh 'Superbe' Roadster. Retaining its original dark green enamel, with correct labelling and all fittings, this is a rare post-WWII model with Bowden cable brakes, stainless steel rims and spokes, and owing to war shortages, a three-speed Sturmey Archer rear Dyno hub dated 1950, fitted is the correct Lucas head and rear lamp, together with the down tube battery holder, its steering lock retains its key together with a Brooks B56 leather saddle, calliper brakes, saddle bag, prop-stand, chain case, green pump and mudguards. The enamel and chromium-plating are in marvellous order given that this is 65-year old survivor. (1)
