Raleigh Expert needed: 1982 Competition GS Campy
I just bought a (I was told) 1981 Competition GS (may be an 80'??) with Campagnolo parts from head to toe almost. I am researching further into that. The websites I go to have a pretty set way of decoding the Serial numbers.
My number does not match that system so I have questions and a theory.
I've got about $135.00 in her plus $20.00 in gas. TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY!
Can you decode my sn? SN - N1C6318
The C doesnt fit in that spot according to what I've read. Could it stand for designating Campy parts? Just a thought since it didn't match.
She is Silver with Maroon pinstriping, lettering, etc.
Thanks for any help you can give.
Cranks set: Campy
Pedals: Gran Sport
Front and Rear Derailluers: Nuevo
Seat tube: Campy

Reason: post pics MORE INFO
I do not know exactly what year it is, but I remember the bike. Gran Sport stuff was OK. The crank and rear derailleur are the weakest points. Definitely worth your investment.
umpire54, I know this is an old thread but I am looking for some help. I have a similar bike I bought in '82 or '83 and am trying to get more info on it. If I remember correctly mine was sold as a "Competition 531". My serial number is a similar format to yours (N2G0402) and not in accordance with any Raleigh serial number lists I have been able to find. Were you ever able to further identify that bike?
That forum member might not be active anymore. You should probably start from scratch and list details on bike and pics of all major components, from drive-side especially. Lots of Raleigh knowledge here on the forum can help.
