1907 Raleigh Superbe X Frame
Frame No 180541
This early X Frame was restored in 1999 using later wheels and saddle. 1908 was the year Raleigh introduced extensions on their front mudguards. Although it’s a heavy machine, it rides well.
Observe that the Superbe illustrated in the 1908 magazine (above) has a front mudguard extension, while the model shown in the 1907 catalogue picture below still has the cut-off front mudguard. 1908 was Raleigh’s changeover year for mudguard extensions.
