    Irish (Not Nottingham) Raleigh BB Question(s)

    OK, I have read Sheldon's website (among others) and it seems to specify Nottingham Raleighs with 26 tpi BBs and headsets. I also searched the forums and haven't found anything about Irish Raleigh threading. I have recently come across a Raleigh Record made in Ireland (according to headbadge). It has cottered cranks. I have yet to take the BB apart, and was wondering if the Irish Raleighs had the Raleigh "standard" 26 tpi?

    In an archive here on bikeforums, someone wrote that a BB from a 1980 World Sport from Schwinn would fit a 26 tpi Raleigh, any truth to this?

    I imagine so, even the dutch and danish built Raleigh Sports were 26tpi until the 80s, and the Record is basically the same thing, assuming it's from the 60s, 26tpi was also used by other manufactureres before the war, it may have been common at one time, it's "BSF fine cycle thread" not a raleigh invented thread.

    I heard a story about the irish plant, apparently it had wooden floors and over the years floors soaked up a lot of nasty flamable chemicals spilled on the floor and one day it burned down.

    ofofhy-
    Like your homepage-three cheers for another four years-
    But anyway, where did you pick up that Irish Raleigh? I have been looking for one for a while now and have come up dry. If you have an interest in parting with it let me know, so long as its large enough.
    Godspeed-

    Since you said "large enough", I am guessing that 52 cm is not large enough. I am not really interested in parting with it anyway. I found it at a yard sale, and picked it up for $20. I got the guy to take $10 off it because the chainring was bashed. It had a mint rear rack on it that was worth the $20 by itself. So it was a good find. The only drawback to it is the BB. I still haven't taken it apart, haven't had the time as work is getting in the way. My goal is to have it up and running in late-February, early-March.
