Looking for some help identifying the follow frame. It looks like it has been resprayed red.

The Frame has the following numbers "R147-7" "0905140210" on the BB shell.

Many thanks

Similar to mine (although no RSP badge on mine), with the same forks

I've been searching for a year and not turned anything up on these yet.. :-(

Was this recently on eBay?

I dont think its a RSP one, they did a range of cheap and heavy commuter grade bikes and that down tube reminds me of one of those.

Probably early 2000's ish.

Some of the RSPs had the aero downtube as well. Mainly the later Ti frames, but I've seen some steel ones too. (I was offered one when Raleigh closed the factory!)

From memory I think these were some of the last models out of the RSP so would imagine around 2000 ish? give or take.
I think these ran concurrent to the last 853 models road and mtb that had the flames on them.
