9 stars on that Raleigh!
Sweet… and HUGE!!!!!
Le plus beau Raleigh… mais seulement 8 étoiles; 2 vitesses de trop 😉
I have this same bike in the same condition, plus an old survivor that’s ridable, but not as prettty. They really are sweet rides. Yours is beautiful!
Thanks ! I ride it a few times a year but it mostly stays in the living room. I have a daily rider but it’s not as nice…
Great Bike! I just bought a 1958 Raleigh Superbe in the dark green… Don’t ask how much I paid.. lets just say it was love at first sight… Did you do the renovation on your DL-1 yourself? if so I would very much like to know some of the tricks you used… and any of the good resources you found as well. Thanks for posting such a great bike.. I hope to be sharing some of mine as soon as I get it bright and shinny like yours.
-Cheers! – Will
I was lucky enough to find it new and still in the box… Those Superbs are really cool too, especially the older ones like yours. Send me a picture and I’ll post it on my site !
Sheldon Brown is really the best resource, and you’ll find lots of discussions on Englilsh 3-speeds on the classic and vintage bike forum
Hi there, could I please ask and hope to find out, if Raleigh bicycles are still available in such an awesome condition??
Hi ! You can actually still buy them new:
Beautiful! I love my DL-1. He’s called Reginald the Flying Pig. Nothing compares to the grace of a Raleigh.
