    Raleigh serial numbers

    [ Hi,

    My name is Tom. I have not rode a bike for years but recently I decided to enter a local race for 50+ adults.
    I have just begun riding an an old bike I picked up years ago at a flea market. When I went to get it a tire fixed at the local bike shop, they informed me this is a good bike. It is a Raleigh "Record" buillt Nottingham, England (probably in the early to mid 70's).

    I believe the serial number is G5 67602, also on the bottom of the bike, it is also stamped K .

    It is in pretty good riding condition but I am trying to learn as much as I can about the bike and bringing it back to the original condition.

    If anyone could help me I would appreciate it

    Tom

    I've got a 1970 Record, serial number 2666189 (no prefixes or suffixes). Records weren't particularly special bikes and were fairly low in the Raleigh line. That said, I'm quite fond if mine. I've had it for about 20 years now. Here's a pic:


    The non-standard paint job was inspired by my then-roommate's Motobecane Super Mirage. It was originally bronze green and white. I'm hoping to strip it an repaint in the original scheme soon. It had it's brakes replaced at some point (Dia-Compe cam-action sidepulls instead of the standard Weinmann centrepulls), and I put Weinmann concave rims on it to replace the bent steel rims. I also replaced the worn-out f & r deraillers with a SunTour Le Pree rd & Campy somethingorother fd, and it got SunTour downtube shifters. So, original, it's not. But it's still a fun ride. ;-) Enjoy yours!

    Can you post a picture of yours? I'd like to see it.

    Cheers!

    I think the serial number is probably 'GS67602', which would indicate it was built under license in the Netherlands by Gazelle, in December 1976.

    Does it look like this?
