Raleigh Super Course Racing USA

Here is a beautiful Raleigh Racing USA Super Course circa 1985. The frame measures 50cm by 52cm center to center. It is constructed of Raleigh 555 tubing which I do believe was made by Reynolds. The frame and fork are fully chrome plated. The bike has been built up with Shimano 600 Arabesque components including cranks, derailleurs, brake levers, brake calipers, shifters, and bottom bracket. The seat post and pedals are both SR. The handle bars are Alps Industry Co Ltd. The stem and headset are the original Raleigh issue, and the wheels are built with Mavic 190 rims laced to Shimano 105 hubs. The cassette is a Uniglide 6 speed. The bars were finished with Velox cloth tape, hemp twine and amber shellac.
