Those three bikes you mentioned all seem quite different from each other.
Raleigh Clubman is a touring bike that will be comfortable and stable, suited
for longer rides and commuting.
LOOK KG is a racing machine.
Batavus are well made Dutch bikes - but they are a bit like the Dutch Raleigh in that they make all kinds of bikes. So it depends what model you are looking at.
I like Dutch and Belgian bikes because they generally don't have the same hype as French, Italian and British bikes, and are therefore often a bit cheaper for similar quality.
Another suggestion is just to buy the cheapest ridable thing you can and cut your teeth on repairing and restoring that. That way it won't matter so much if you make any mistakes, and you can always move onto something nicer if you decide you like it. That's what I did, and I now have a cellar full of about 15 different projects at various different stages.
Thanks, genuinely i haven't got much idea about older racing bikes, thats why Im coming on here for some advice. Id just take anything i could find at the moment, as just want a cheap commuter which is light weight and decent frame that i can restore to a decent condition with some new parts etc. Im not really looking at a touring bike as i have ridden them before and never felt 100% comfortable.
What can you say about the Look KG, any ideas what they are worth?
