Hi, I've just purchased a frame off eBay and I think it might be of a better quality than I was expecting. I'm trying to work out what is but am not having much luck.

The frame number is WB8000632 which I think means that it is a Feb 1988 better quality build from the Nottingham branch. Would be nice to think it was 1978 from Worksop but I think the cantilever bosses safely rule that out.

The chainstay spacing is 126mm.

I shall try and attach the photograph from Ebay.

If anybody has any idea what it might be I'd be very interested.

Cheers
Andy

I think that this might be a possibility, Raleigh Gemini http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/ladies-bicycle-raleigh-gemini-reynolds-531-excellent-condition/108301307#gallery-item-full-3

I can't see it getting repainted in that colour, nor this colour (male version) http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=936895
