I have a nice 531 Record Ace frame i would like to fit out with Campagnolo Veloce Groupset. The frame has Campagnolo 126mm dropouts which will need to be space to 130mm. If anyone has got any advice and ideas, so i don't cock it up would be appreciated. Also the frame says handcrafted by Carlton cycles, Worksop and has a Raleigh badge. The serial Number has WS and the year 1983. Frame size is 55 from BB to ST with a 56 top tube. I am a bit confused because i read that Raleigh Carlton closed in 1981. It was bought from a Dutch fellow who also selling an ex team TI bike. I have had quite a good look around but can't find the model. Can anyone shed some light?
Also there are no eyelits for mudgards and the brake clearance is quite tight.
The paint job just like the Carlton Pro-Am but named a Record Ace.
