I recommend a nice candlelit dinner and a good quality sparkling wine followed by coffee and the theater, you don't want to skimp these old Raleigh's are a bit classy you know :wink: :lol: :lol: :facepalm:

I think about 1988-89

Nothing further?

What do the numbers tell me? Probably nothing on a mass produced bike?

I am basing my 88/89 on the fact that LGF's Maverick pro is from 87' and that these don't appear in the 90' catalogue in the archive, I believe that 88 was the Ozark and the Avanti, So I think this is an 89'. They messed about with mountain bikes so much back then it is hard to pin down :wink:

Thanks, that sounds like a well reasoned theory. Will go with 89.

Still thinking pearl white.

If its anything like the road bike numbering then the third digit is the year of manufacture. Zero is going to be 1980 or 1990…...

@Shaun (Midlife)

The more I think about it the more that makes sense to me, I am readjusting my position to 1990 :D

And Pearl white is a lovely colour if you do get it done post some pics please as I want a frame done in pearl white :D
