Funny how things happen. Read a thread on here yesterday and someone mentioned gumtree - thought blimey, havent looked at that in ages. Typed in Gumtree Nottingham, went to the sport section and there was a Raleigh Record Sprint frame for sale for £30. Pictures weren't great but at 30 sovs you can't not be interested. Rang the chap - it was his dads - and he said yeah, frames fine but the decals are pealing. To cut a short story shorter, within 90 minutes of that phone call the bike plus some wheels was at my abode. Internet shopping at it's fastest.
So to the help I need - anyone got a component list as it would of been in the shop? I think most things have been changed over the years - SR bars & Weinmann levers / calipers are still in place but everything else looks like it's been swapped out - drivetrain is all Shimano. Wheels provided are Mavic MA3's on Maillard 700 large flange hubs - obviously not the originals.
Cables are internally routed in the top-tube so i'm assuming this is one of the latter made frames - 1986? 501 tubing. Frame Number: 4461446 (no letters??) located on the BB with a 76 also stamped further round on the BB. Can't find anything on the www as there's no letters to identify where it was made.
I've seen a couple of other threads on RB for this model of bike as well as the very impressive anodising carried out recently to create the gold components - I won't be going that far - but the plan is to (cheaply) swap out what I can then I can put a thread up on the readers road bike section.
Any suggestions / component list would be greatly welcomed so I can do a quick re-furb and take it for a spin this summer.
