Raleigh Model Superbe X

1925, Racing Lock-ups, On long term display

As with the gentleman’s Modele Superbe, this was the most expensive bicycle in the Raleigh range. It has the original green paint and elaborate gold lining, aluminium wheel rims and a Sturmey-Archer (Tricoaster) 3-speed geared hub controlled by a barrel handlebar lever. A wicker basket, Lucas No. 42 handlebar coat carrier and a Lucas No. 6 bell are all fitted to the handlebars. It has a full chaincase and dress guard to keep a lady’s skirt away from the spokes and out of the chain, and a lightweight folding stand fitted to the nearside chainstay. The front tyre is a ‘Birmos Speed’.

A highly prized possession, this was not for keeping in the garden shed.
