Interesting machine.... can't quite make out what precisely it is.... perhaps a Supercourse with upside down northroad bars? It's commanding a pretty fair price nonetheless...

NMA, etc.

Appears to be a 1970 Raleigh International - Reynolds 531 frame, full Campy with Weinmann brakes. It appears to be in superb shape, and is in one of the preferred frame size, 22 1/2". The North Rounder bars are definitely a later addon by the owner.

I'd say the price reflects the bike quite well, although the ad is not too specific, and the photos are a tad wanting in details.

I would concur Kurt. It is in fine condition... I wonder if the "80 year old" owner used to ride Club bikes and put those bars on it...

Regards!

Part of the coronation craze of '53. Must have been intended to be stuck onto just about anything: window, bike, car, lunch box,...

Do you ride your New Hudson with your golf clubs over your sholder?

I have seen this decal on a Coronation Mug. Applied as normal then varnished over.

One had a coronation in 1953 when one was crowned.

I have a large collection of coronation ephemera dating back to the 1887 Jubilee. The '53 coronation marked the high point of the craze for these items. Mugs were the most popular items; often distributed by schools to the pupils. These items trade on eBay for a few pounds and even show up in antique (junk) shops here in the USA. They make a very nice display if you have an assortment of them. Some are really beautiful, such as my Royal Doulton mug of the 1887 Jubilee; most of the 53 stuff was pretty naff though! Charles investiture as POW produced some as did his wedding to Di--that is where my collection ends. I am sure Charles' upcoming wedding to Camilla Park-the Rolls will see more of this kind of ephemera produced for the souvenir market!

I found a dutch company that is willing to ship parts and accessories to the states, after a year of searching, http://workcycles.com/selection.html they are also willing to ship bicycles. They are not a regular bike shop so processing a large number of small parts orders is a pain for them, so I thought I would see if anyone wants to order any dutch bits, 28" rims, tyres, fenders, wheel locks etc?
I'm going to order a box of drum brake cable barrel ends, a skirt guard and a "fietstassen" one of those heavy duty vinyl pannier bags, the sort the dutch post office use.
They don't have spare parts listed but can apparently get just about anything seen on a dutch bike and have most things.

These bikes are wonderful. My wife was not impressed with the idea of giving up her Mitsubishi Shogun for an 8 seater trike!

Matthew - anyone for a conference?

No offense to the winning bidder, but the final bid of $19.26 is ridiculous!

It's a common 1970's Raleigh chainguard, with the two brackets on the back side rendering it compatible with virtually nothing pre-mid '60s.

Not much can be said of it's condition other then it is free of the common crease in the center from the crank mashing into the poorly-aligned guard.

To top it off, it has the pitiful script lettering of post-1972.

You can buy the whole bike that the guard came off of at thrift shops for less then this fellow paid for the guard!
