I have recently purchased an aluminium raleigh special products frame off the dreaded fleabay without any decals or badges in a colour (dark green metallic) which is unusual with rigid forks it has the box section chainstays and cnc machined chainstay bridge
can anyone identify this ? nostalgia got the better of me but it does seem alovely frame.

Looks like an RSP that's been repainted to me :lol: would certainly never have come in that colour and with that fork.

In respect of the colour I had an old raleigh max alu II which was exactly the same colour circa 1992 so I think it is a raleigh colour
