Thinking of selling Bloodbear (1972 vintage Raleigh Super Course)
I am strongly considering selling my vintage 1972 Raleigh Super Course. The bike is not stock, and has been converted into a fixie. I bought this bike late last year, but it’s seen practically no action. I hate to see a great bike collect dust, and right now I would get a lot more use out of a Time Trial bike.
Here’s a some information about her:
- Original Reynolds 531 steel frame
- Original Coffee paint and decals (no rust), with beautiful Nervex lugs
- Original GB (Gerry Burgess) quill stem
- Original Raleigh headbadge and chromed fork crown
The bike was originally a 10-speed but, as mentioned above, it has been converted into a fixie. It’s set up with Ultegra 170mm cranks, a 39t chainring and a 14t cog.
The wheels, tires, chain, crank, pedals, bottom bracket, rear cog, seat post, saddle and bar tape are not stock. Also, because the bike was converted into a fixie there are no shifters or shifter cables. The bike can be run sans-brakes, if desired, but I also have the brakes and will include those. I can include the saddle (Selle Italia) and clipless pedals (Shimano Ultegra), if desired. Speed/cadence sensor and magnet can also be included (installed) as well. I can also include a Trixie-Fixie Tool if you need that.
Here are some photos. I’d prefer to sell locally, but if you’re willing to foot the shipping costs I can ship. If you’re interested, hit me up with an offer.
