This frame was launched as a part of the 1999 catalogue range.
It was a development from the previous freeride model and was designed by Justin Stevenson who is now at Whyte.
The alloy frame was manufactured by A-PRO in Taiwan, painted and assembled in Raleigh Special Products Department.

There were 3 models launched in 1999, 400, 350 and 300.
The 400 had a Terra Blue main frame and a Red rear.
The 350 had a Red main frame and a Yellow rear,
The 300 had a Mustard main frame and a Blue rear.

The range in 2000 was reduced to 2 models, the 400 and the 300.
The 400 had a White frame with blue flashing at the front of the main frame and at the rear of the stays.
The 300 had a Yellow frame flashed with Silver.

I don't have details for 2001 as I had moved to Dawes by then


Found this before bidding to help ID the frame.

Thanks for looking and your input tho!

That was the spec for the RSP400, but having just had another look at the pics on e-bay, it is defo NOT a standard production RSP400.

The 500 was built from Reynolds 853. The 400 was Alloy.

We did build up the bikes for the photo shoot in the "Emma" catalogue with 853 frames which were handbuilt in SPD. The reason was that we needed to shoot the pics before we could get samples over of the alloy frame from A-Pro.

I also remember that there was quite some delay in the alloy frames arriving for first production and we may have been forced to up-spec some to meet the demand.

So it could be a 500 in 400 livery?

I will take some photo's and pop them in a photobucket for perusal at your leisure.

Absolutely identical!

Except the one in the pic is a medium and mine is a small sized frame.
