Does anyone know if the Raleigh Professional MKIV were available in the UK?
I was looking for ages for the 22.5" (57cm) version.
Thanks.

Thanks. I will check. It may not have been a MKIV with the fast seat back cluster and also the sloping front forks? You can get a different version of the Professional in the UK. The red and black one that looks to be a different bike.

The frame was and likely a comparable built up bike. see my post about the frame number which is a bit strange but may have reflected the nature of the frame / bike at the time which was meant for worldwide consumption..

That looks much the same.
What is the stand over height please?
Have you sold it?
I wouldn't mind coming to see it.
It's not blue but I am hoping that you have made an error measuring and it is 57cm square.

Thanks for that clarification. They are very elegant to my eye. Perhaps a 57cm is just around the corner?
