Hi guys,
I bought this bike a while back on Ebay, kind of an impulsive as I was in those first vestiges of retro buying, and it turns out to be a lovely ride. Very light, responsive, and great feel. But I haven't a clue what it is as there are no markings whatsoever. What I do know is it has Campag dropouts, and beautiful scalloped seat stays that are pencil thin. Any ideas?

could be a 531db Raleigh clubman frame or a variant as it looks like one I had which also had no braze ons for shifters.

similar to:

Good call, certainly looks very similar. As I say its a lovely ride, so was hoping it was something a bit nicer than bog standard. It certainly feels like it.

Cheers!

Nothing to be ashamed of about it - a quality machine built in Nottingham.

No no Hamster, I didn't mean to imply that at all. It's a lovely bike and meant I was glad it wasn't just bog standard!

:oops:

Further investigation reveals a some marking on the BB shell..
I can just make them out but I think its a 'c' in a diamond <c> and what i think is 6366. above that to the right is the number '22'

Is that the same as yours legrandfromage?..

that makes it a nicer frame as that means a cast bottom bracket shell, so you are getting to mid to high quality now.
