Campagnolo made these for a few years in the early seventies. Personally, I think they are lovely to look at but there is a ~300 gram weight penalty vs. Nuovo Record. ...

I had a baby blue Schwinn Super Sport that I used as a commuter. Wheels were 27 x 1 1/4 and there was plenty of clearance for mudguards. I enjoyed riding that bike and I never worried about locking...

Huret Success rear derailleur. Super light, robust, easily handles a 28 tooth sprocket, shifts better than the sought-after Jubilee and looks good until you lose/break that funky plastic insert....

I think the giveaway is hanging on the rear dropout in the photo at the link below. The Weigle 650B Intercourse is indeed based on a Raleigh Competition. No "Inter", no "Course", a complete fraud :)...
