Yep it's similar to an old 'Breeze' but not quite the same.

Here, I fixed it.

I'm at work where I can't upload anything to P-bucket, so some mod needs to save it and replace my orig with this one.

P.S. Siu...I really hate that word.

That ebay bike is different to that Raleigh Trail Rider, look at where the seat stays are connected to the seat tube, where the diagonal tubes that run from the head tube to the back end are connected and where the rear brake is attached.

Some crass is okay...that was on the "other side of the fence".

Honestly...I was just flabbergasted that it would be stamped on a BB shell. Had to be done post production by some gutter crawler who wanted to be able to identify his bike.

Ya, any knuckle-dragger with a ten dollar bill and a Harbor Freight nearby can create his own "serial number."

Swapped attachments for you. Hard to figure out but I got it.
