A quick question--
I heard somewhere awhile back that very late production Raleigh 3 speed frames were held together by some kind of industrial epoxy in the lugs rather than by the usual brazing. I'd never heard this before or anywhere else; is it true? If so what model years would this cover?

Are you thinking of the Techniums? Those certainly weren't 3-speeds, however, and I've never heard that about Raleigh Sports.

I'd never heard it before either, or anywhere else for that matter. I'm apt to believe it was confusion with another bike of some sort-- those old 3 speed Sports and DL1 frames were pretty heavy.

If you are talking about English Raleighs, never heard of this one. They were certainly brazed . Newer US/Huffy Technium aluminum Raleighs were bonded, as far as I know.

Vitus and Alan aluminium frames are bonded in this way, but I've never heard of Raleigh using this technique.
