didn't Fignon, or rather Castormana Raleigh use Campag. Nice bikes all the same.

Nice Q&A. I get a question like that, I block the bidder.

He must be confident or he would not of posted the question and his answer. I personally think Lance rode a 56 too...

Yes, probably he is of the opinion he has nothing to hide and want to do business in the most sincere way.

Still, for them doubting risk averse people: I still have my Tulip FullPro! I am sure that one is authentic, but for 210 gbp you won't get robbed anyway :lol:

Thought this might get outed here. Nice bike.

If I was looking to bid would perhaps like to see more provenance as to the authenticity, however the question is quite badly put.

@bushpig great pics from that Japanese museum. Near Osaka is it?

The Raleigh pictured does look tidy. Hard to tell from the pic if it's genuine or not, although if a Japanese museum claims it to be genuine I'd tend to believe them - the Japanese are sticklers for detail.
Fignon did indeed ride C-Record in the 89 Tour whereas this has Shimano.
Raleigh did release a Worksop built 653 in Castorama colours although it's hard to differentiate from this pic given the 653 and 753 decals of this era where both purple.
It does have a number peg braze on which generally denotes a team frame (of the two RSP 753 frames I have only the one which is ex-team has a number peg).
Also the frame pictured does look somewhat like this picture

..apart from the b/b cable guides.

Also don't think any of the 653 offerings had a braze on front mech either, mine certainly doesn't.
