    Decided to do something different with my '28 Elgin frame, so I have been on the lookout for a nice lugged English road bike. Found this really cool Raleigh Super Course at the Links n Kinks Fairborn show. Awesome lug work. Stripped off the brakes, shifters, chainrings, etc and converted it to a single speed rat roadie. Bike rides amazing.

    No, I am old and seriously bad knees. Chimi built up the wheels a couple years back with a coaster brake!

    I've been tossing kinda the same idea for a road cruiser also. I've already collected the majority of my parts (all Campy) but still lacking the rite frame set.
    I'm also looking for a nice lugged frame like yours but they do come with a price.
    I have one or two in hand but I just don't feel it.
    I know that one is out there calling my name..
    Until then I will wait for it..
    Before I forget.
    That is one sweet looking Raleigh cruiser you have there.. Everything just flows..
