Maybe try asking on the TI Raleigh Yahoo group, some very knowledgeable people there (think some post here but no regularly).

Is there any reason why the seat stays on my frame fasten in such a way - right at the top & back of the seat tube ?

Does it confer any advantage ?

The bike on Ebay (link below) is also 753; but it is entirely different to my frame. It has different stays.

There appears to have been quite a lot of variety amongst the Raleigh Special Division bikes.

A contact has offered me a '126mm 7sp Ultegra 6402 HyperGlide compatible cassette hub' - would that be suitable for my bike ?

Regards.

Sure I've seen later bikes with that seatstay configuration. As you ay just a different design. Sure the experts on the yahoo group will put you right on that.

Hub sounds spot on. A pair?

Could be a Dynaflight with those stays. Also, have a look at the damaged Raleigh under the "polo" link. Apparently it was Malcolm Elliot's.
It does have the stays that were fitted in fastback style.

I think Cinelli was the first to put fast back seat stays on a bike in 1947. I believe the reasons were increase stiffness and aerodynamic.
