The Raleigh website is advertising the TI-Raleigh 40th Anniversary Edition in Reynolds 753.

https://www.raleigh.co.uk/gb/en/ti-raleigh-relaunch/

Q&A includes
The TI-Raleigh Anniversary Edition Bicycle, and the Anniversary Frameset, will go on sale on the Raleigh website on the 1st September at 4pm.
The Raleigh TI will be limited to one per customer.
The TI-Raleigh 40th Edition Bike will retail for £2500. The Frameset will retail for £1500.

No mention of sizes, the last special edition for was only available in Small which limited the appeal.

Sounds like it’s not available for overseas shipping....as the frameset seems a better option.

Just about to order one. Trying to find out who’s making them. Yes the frame is better value as a lot of the complete bike I wouldn’t want. I’ve got a pdf on an email when I’m home later I’ll try to sort out an upload onto here.

Looks like they've bought up some old 10-speed Veloce mechs, cassettes and brakes which were last seen in the 2017 catalogue.
Brake levers look like a combination of Dia-Compe DC204QC and GC202 but I'm intrigued to know what gear levers they've used. They look like Dia-Compe which would make them friction only so a real throw back to 1980 there.
Chainset - Andel? Looks like 52/42 whatever it is.
As for hubs headset and seatpost - no idea.

I think it looks like quite a good effort at a throwback machine visually with the usefulness of a wider range cassette although how many will actually get ridden?
Would be good to know who's building the frames, presumably a reasonably large outfit unless it's a really limited run. Do Bob Jackson still have 753 certified builders?

Mark.

Apparently only 200 being built. Gear levers are Dia Compe.
