Bit stumped on my latest project. Something I like about this bike so may become my charity ride bike. The specs are Altenburger centre pull brakes, Rigida Wheels, Schimano Selecta Chainset, Sachs Huret ECO S rear deralliuer and Miche pedals. The saddle is a Brooks Professional. It is in good condition underneath the dust and muck.
Any help in dating or make appreciated,the stickers both say Tour of Britain but may have been added at a later date

Shaun, I don't see Raleigh, more like early Taiwan.
Is it late 1960's /1970?
Unless some family reason, not worth spending real money on, but could be a useful ride.

My first though Keith was Steyer-Daimler-Puch :) it was just the curve of the forks and the rear mudguard eyes jutting out the back of the pressed rear dropouts that made it a bit more english.......

To be honest, when I first got it I thought Puch

Thanks to the forum I can now confirm that the bike is either it's a Harry Quinn rebadge or a Falcon, both the same bike.
