Early 70's Raleigh. . .

Here's the pic form CL.



The seller has informed it's possibly a 1972. And used to be some shade of red. No further details.

I don't get the flat bar either. . . aftermarket modification?

There's just not enough information in that photo to say much. Well, it's a ten speed with stem shifters, probably had a drop bar originally. The look of the stem shifters and cotterless crank suggest late 70's... but I'm probably going out on a limb already.

yeah after I posted I found some things that suggest dating a Raleigh is an arduous task.

It's a 140 mile round trip drive. . . but the dude's asking $50. . . so. I'm probably going to go anyway at least to look.

S/N seems to be RM711704 on the seat tube.

Ok, I got some better pics. Still kind of a crap shoot, but here goes:

Front head tube, brake:


Stem / shifters:


Crank


Rear derailleur:


Brooks saddle.
