New Raleigh Fan - New to Forum

Hi, I am a new member to the forum looking forward to being involved here.

I just bought a used, in great shape Raleigh Grand Prix 10 speed. My best guess is that it is a 1972 or 1973. I plan on getting it tuned up and using it for my 6 mile commute

I also found an old ten speed at a garage sale, but I have know idea who makes it and was hoping someone on here could lend me a hand in figuring out who made it. There is one serial number ingraved on the frame just above the crank. Also, on the bottom bar there are two heart shaped symbols stamped on the bar. Besides those two identifiers I cant find anything else about the bike. Suntour spirt. Suntour gears.

If anyone has any ideas to help me identify this old ten speed I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

p.s. I can post pics if those would help

Hi VintageMan, trot over to the Classic & Vintage forum, and put up some photos. Someone over there will be able to help you out.

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.
