There is a slight problem with this frame though, as I've already hinted at. It tried to go back to Raleigh to be fixed because after a short time from new this had happened:

Top of RH seatstay:

RH seat stay nearer bottom:

RH Chainstay:

LH Chainstay:

Seems like 2 years of hard racing had taken its toll. The frameset is really light including the rear stays - made especially for the team and as light as they can make it.
The rear end has a scary "ting" on the stays, seems like they are pretty much road bike tubes!!

My word that frame brings back some memories. I used to work for that shop on the chainstay "Dauphin Sport". Barry used to come into the shop and he was a top bloke. Caroline Alexander used to come up too and I will never forget crashing her Klein race bike with Girvins on it in the snow outside the shop.......happy times!

Are you saying I am wrong or are you just posting up an interesting video?

Nice find! 8)

Any chance of photo of the tubeset decal?
Is it the rare early team only 2080 (bonded Reynolds 753) tubeset? - would explain the steel chainstays

Probably your actual frameset in the video @ 1:55

That's very cool Rob, what a great find.

Lets hope it can be fixed up and brought back to its former glory. Looks like it will take some real effort though.

Watching with interest for updates.
