Hello people !

So the project is moving forward ! I almost have all the parts, there is one crucial one missing though : the bottom bracket.
So firstly I don't know if it's japanese or english threading, I assume english because of the brand Raleigh ? Any easy way to check that ?
Then second question, how do I know the length of the bottom bracket spindle ? I have a Shimano Golden Arrow double crankset to put on

Thanks !

I have a mid 80s Criterium that I've just resprayed (on another thread) it had a heavy stamping number under the bottom bracket like yours but also a much feinter Raleigh serial number stamped at the bottom of the seat tube that I only discovered after it had been stripped.
I guessed that the number on the BB might relate to the spec of the casting to be used in the factory rather than the individual frame number.
This also had 501db tubing and Gipiemme dropouts, but again was slightly different from its catalogue spec.
Hope this may be of some help.

Hi Southwestslacker1 ! Thanks for your informations !

I looked closely at the sticker on the bottom of the seat tube and also found a serial number, very very fade out on the sticker I can read 00133450, maybe this number will help identifying the bike ?
