So, what is it that belongs to Raliegh?
The first rule of flats is You don't talk about flats!
DUC_TAPE...to what is the limited edition referring ? Or maybe Kurt has that answer?
Limited Edition, the marketing guys were hard at work even back then.
Where in Southern California are all these bikes?
The shop interior does not look familiar, but that is not saying much.
Wow, what a collection! I guess now I'll have to take pictures of the late '30s Paramount at my LBS.
I delivered papers on one of these (in red). The local Rexall drugstore had a contest, and another kid won it.
A few years later, I bought it for $10 when I got a paper route. Thanks for the memory.

Does the Raleigh Pro have an asking price? What size is it? -- looks like a 24-1/2 or 25-1/2" frame.
I think there were 500 of these made. I'm lucky to have #133 and #451. My father bought #451 as a frameset in 1971. I raced on it during high school. I just got #133 a couple of months ago.
I found a reference that Raleigh made over 700,000 other bikes in 1970.
Here's me on 451 at the 1974 East Coast Regional Time Trials. I just missed the cut to go to the Nationals.
If anyone has an old velodrome/track frame like the one above please let me know!
GMS is exactly correct. Only 500 of those made.
DUC_TAPE - do you work in a bike shop or a museum?
In search of what to search for.
