Does anybody know whether the silver model (1977) was made in Nottingham or also other locations?

Thanks a lot,

Uri
Hi Uri - And welcome to C&V. I don't know the answer to your question but probably someone here does. All I know is that prior to 77, GP's were made in both Holland and Nottingham. The Dutch bikes carry a sticker saying where they were made. By 77 Raleigh went to a cotterless crank and a Raleigh branded Suntour DR - so this could be considered a plus on this bike. The pictures you link to are pretty poor though, so I can't say much more.
