Thanks for the clarification, John. I'll give it a skip then, I'll try to keep the rebuild authentic - plus it takes away another reason to procrastinate.
I agree, yes it would be interesting to see my Raleigh build progress ...
I bought the Ilkeston 753 frame from the Dutch seller that was discussed here a while ago, and have almost all the parts to go on. I'll hopefully be reunited with the wheels at the end of the month and that _should_ be my last stumbling block ... though I'm sure I'll find another!
Seriously though, I'd like to touch up some of the 'TI Red' first, so will start a thread about that.
Seem to recall this cropping up on the TI Raleigh yahoo group (or elsewhere, I forget?). Basically no. A lot of the panto stuff was aftermarket anyhow, it has been alleged a lot of the panto stuff knocking about currently are modern reproductions, i.e. older parts recently panto'd.
Be interesting to see your Raleigh build progress. What frame do you have? Got an ilkeston build 753 waiting for me to do something with.
