This is my 1988 Kellogg's Pro Tour, Bought it about a month ago for the sum of £20
sorry to all the retro purists out there but I decided not to keep it original for the moment but will be put back to standard when I retire it and will restore it back to its original glory. I've gone 3x8 24 speed (MTB'er, not being a roadie I need all the granny gears I can get for the Derbyshire hills where I live)
For any Raleigh Boffins, help, I have noticed there appears to be two different frame/fork designs on this year of raleigh's of this model and other raleigh 501 models, the difference being:
Version 1) concealed rear brake cable in top tube and with unicrown forks.
Version 2) Rear brake cable routed on top of top tube with 3 ferrules/lugs, and with Forged fork crown.
There also appears to be different components fitted
v1) Shimano SIS R400 shifters, Shimano Mechs
v2) Raleigh branded friction white plastic aero levers, Sachs Huret mechs.
