    1989 Raleigh Team Pro Track - a quick visual study

    Granted, there isn't much to differentiate this frame from an earlier model, except that it carries a standard W serial number (WA9....), following the demise of the SBDU in 1987. Headbadge is the later UK-style, rivet-less aluminum variant with italicized lettering.

    Appears to have Cinelli lugs, as to be expected of the team frames. Not shown is the fork, which has a Zeus 2001 flat fork crown.

    An interesting beast, no doubt. Goes to show that the nicest of traditional frames may not necessarily have all the appeal (namely, SBDU provenance) expected of their virtually identical cousins of earlier (or, in some cases, later) production. Essentially an identical frame to a 1987 Team Pro Track; yet, this one probably has 50% less snob appeal over a serial number (despite being far less common). Go figure.

    My '79 raleigh track has the same fork crown. Not sure of the lug type though.

    Good to know there was a set standardization, but if I recall correctly, Zeus 2001 came out in the 1980's. Is your fork crown marked Zeus 2001 or Zeus 2000?

    The later Team replicas used the Cinelli lugs as on the '89. Your frame has the Bocama Competitions that are usually associated with the 1970's Professionals: http://velobase.com/ViewFramePart.as...a-f0dba1c4d19a

    Interesting. Throws the conventional Zeus 2001 introduction dates out the window.
