I'm looking for a Raleigh 853 cyclocross bike, in a large size (I'm 6'0"). I'm interested in a complete bike or just a frame/fork. They weren't imported to the USA as far as I know, so the search has been difficult! I am located on the east coast of the USA. Any links/leads appreciated as well. Thanks!

I've just bought a NOS 60cm of ebay did you ever get one,curious as I want to know the axle to crown length of the forks,mine doesn't have the originals,still will make a great build and I don't think I'll be getting bored of it in a hurry.

Mines near as dammit 385mm a-c

It's a team issue custom frame, but pretty sure the forks are off the shelf ones!

Not sure it'll help, most of the team bikes were one (or two) offs. Using non-standard tube sizes.
But I'll have a look later on and get back to you.

Appears to be a 26.8, which would probably suggest a stock tube set in this case.

Thanks tried a 26.8 and seemed like it should be a 27 I know there are probably no reviews out there on this model but curious to know more about rear stays,full 853 perhaps and what year produced?
