One bicycle I lust after is a Raleigh Superbe.
This product of Nottingham is the quinessential British roadster bicycle. Tough as nails, it was billed as the "all steel" bicycle when steel was a desirable characteristic in a bike. It had 28 inch gum walled tires, roller rod actuated brakes, and a totally enclosed chain case. The Raleigh Superbe came with full fenders, a generator driven headlight, a locking front fork, and a sprung Brooks leather saddle.
