Yep, that's what was called the Mark V at least in the USA... c. 1977-81 and modelled after the Raleigh SBDU Ilkeston frames except in Reynolds 531 not 753 with those cool Haden lugs and seat stay caps. A proper stage racing machine whereas the Mark IV/Giro d'Italia was more of a criterium design with high bb, fastback seatstays, short chainstays and more aggressive handling.

Stays of this type have been attributed to the framebuilder Tom Board. I have a 1967 Geoffrey Butler built by Cliff Shrubb with this type of stay, unlike the"shot-in"type sometimes used by the SBDU.

SBDU founded in 1974 at Ilkeston, and Carlton bought by Raleigh at the suggestion of a certain Mr Reg Harris.

Nice machine although a few hands too tall for me!

Roadking.

That's very nice and in great condition, I have a 1973 model that is 55cm ctc but with lots more scratches!
