Bought a raliegh 653 frame and fork off ebay, yes ebay and well i have no idea what model or year.
I know the original spec was somewhere around shimano 600 and 105 hubs mavic rims ect. But thats it. Its made from reynolds 653 (inbetween 531 and 753) frame and forks.
The bottom bracket was/is 71mm shell 26tpi raleigh own brand thread. Though seems the previous owner has had it rethreaded to 24tpi english but not had the shell shaved to 68 (my next port of call to fit my campy veloce cranks).
Il get some closer pics up soon but was hoping someone could identify it as it must have been fairly high end due to the 600 groupset and 653 isnt cheap especially in comparison to some of the 531 bikes out back in the day.
hoping one of you guys can identify what ive spent hours searching for over the web lol
