Waiting on arrival from the leicester bikes for all people,

I told my son if he buys an old school bike when he grows out of it he could sell it for a similar price - even a profit if he does it up, he liked that idea.

This one will clean up well.

Is anyone able to date this? I think it is a MK1 but am not sure, can you date raleighs from the frame number?

It's a MkI - the looptail rear end gives it away - otherwise it would be two separate tubes with an R cutout in both rear dropouts ;)

I'd say with it being a MkI and with those decals it looks like 84

Does it have a visible serial number anywhere?

Should either be behind the seat tube towards the top of the tube, underneath the BB or on one of the rear dropouts
