    Raleigh Sports exploded diagram?

    Gentlemen:

    I recall that in the not-too-distant past I've seen a very detailed exploded-view diagram of the Raleigh Sports (or maybe Supberb). I can't seem to find it now. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    Alternatively, can you tell me, on the Sports bottom bracket, there is a long bearing cup and a short bearing cup. Which cup goes on which side of the bike? Does the lock ring go on the left?

    Restoring a 1970 Sports, gotta lot of old Raleigh parts laying around, kinda got confused on which cup came outa which side.

    Thanks,

    Mark McClure

    Correct for models up to the late '50s only, though mostly the same for all Sports until 1982.

    As for the cups, you have me there. I gather you removed both then. Believe it or not, despite all the Sports I have worked on, I never got up the nerve to remove a right-hand cup from one of these machines, and neither am I even sure of the threading. Right hand cup should usually be the same color of the frame though - the ones that I have seen were painted with the rest of the bike, if I recall correctly.

    Fixed cup on the drive side, adjustable on the non drive side. Long end of the spindle on the drive side.

    Kurt and Mr. Guy:

    Many thanks for your responses. Would I be correct that the fixed cup is the "shorter" cup?
