Here's some really interesting primary source material from the 87 Raleigh catalogue showing the "Services des Courses" with fastback seat stays.

Sadly that is Raleigh marketing blurb, I wouldn't call it primary source. The text describes a Services des Courses frame but the image isn't. As the text correctly explains, the SDC is full Cinelli with fork crown, BB and lugs - however, the frame in the image has Prugnat lugs, nice frame all the same, probably a model called the Road Champion, but the image certainly doesn't matching the text.

I have a 1976 Lejeune BP jersey, who used the colour scheme I have in the 1976 Tour. Mad to think that one of their riders might have been wearing my jersey alongside Hennie Kuiper on your bike!

Im sure that I'd seen a late "Services des Courses" with fastback seat stays... here it is :D

That is a very different style of seat stay fastening and very different date to the Ilkeston material. I think that is Dave Rayner's 89 bike

Yes it is a late SB Nottingham Services des Courses frame with fastback, not side attached seat stays and Cinelli lugs.

The 1989 Raleigh Team Banana bikes changed to this neat fastback arrangement instead of capped side attached seat stays as featured on the 1988 team bikes. A switch from Shimano Dura Ace to Campagnolo C Record was also made. It appears a Cinelli seat lug was used and neat little lugs on the seat stay tips....super nice :D
