I looked at that and thought Raleigh Record Ace from years ago..... But it's not. It looks familiar though.

Just looked with a magnifying glass, frame number I gave you was wrong (63536 AA), it is 93536 AA. Maybe this helps align the dates? (But not it seems the position of the frame number on the frame tube)

Unfortunately no, the Holdsworthy CB 5 digit number system stopped just shy of 72000 in the summer of 1976.
Sorry Pap, I really don’t think this is a Claud... that’s not to say anything against what your father has done here (if it was him who re-finished this frame) as it looks well done and the chrome work wouldn’t have been cheep..

NB we have to remember that it really wasn’t that long ago when all the amazing information we now have at our fingertips had to be hard fought for. Now it’s real easy to google images and lists on forums & social media. If you’d asked me what this was 20 years ago I would have said a Claud Butler Coureur, just one I hadn’t seen before...
