very interesting my friend had a team bike it was an ex works bike think it was a back up bike for the tour de france he got it in around 1983 his dad knew someone who worked at raleigh quite high up from what i can remember its very close to the one in your pics ill ask him if he has any pics of it i know that he didnt have it long as it was stolen form gloucester town centre a few months after he got it.


What a shame it got nicked! It would be good to see some pics of that if they still have some

Nice project. I finished mine last year, it's a 1980/81 frame so it's slightly different to yours - see my link below. Good luck.

Thanks Pointer - yours is looking good. Mine is off to Mercian soon for the repaint.

Already got the parts coming in for it, a beautiful unmarked 1970s 2 bolt Record seat pin.

Its probably going to be about 130 quid plus VAT - that's the 2 colours black and red.

It's a steep price but I wouldn't trust anyone else other than them. Seen loads of their work over the last 25 years and it is always top notch.

It's a 37 yr old frame that i want to repaint and have last for another 37 years so I'm happy to pay for that. What I don't want is something that costs a little less but looks shabby in a few years and needs done again or has paint that flakes off as soon as i tighten a track nut.
