Show your Raleigh Professional

With all of the recent posts re: Raleigh Pros, I thought it time to start a "Show your" thread. So I'll start with my '78 Pro with NR, Brooks Pro saddle, Mavic tubular rims, and Simplex shifters.

I have a 24 1/2" greenish Pro frame and fork I got from a buddy who bought the bike complete in order to sell off the Campy parts. No hurry to build it, but it will take the place of the blue one I sold years ago to a collector.

Man, all Pro's appear to be giants so far, pretty though.

...the black one is a repaint, the white one is currently undergoing renovation, and the mink blue one just is.

Two shots of same bike. First as restored and second as being ridden. I found the "correct" bars to be too narrow.

Not really, but it does seem that it is one of the few "good" bikes that is not difficult to find in a size large enough for some of us.

This one is new to me. This is the before picture. I have stripped it down and started to reassemble it. I should replace the rear rim and not sure if I want to keep the tubulars or convert to clinchers. I will swipe some wheels off another bike until I decide.

This was a basket case. (Photo is a 'selfie' via remote control. Note the block of wood in the street for my reference.)

Mine has been hanging upside down waiting on me to spend money for some longer reach brakes and levers, a crank, and a front derailleur to return it closer to stock. It might be a income tax check build early next year, done in time for Spring.,,,,BD

Here's the "get it up and running" build.

My August 1976 Mk IV. It remains a mystery to me as it's got the proper Blue Mink/Silver paint under the one you see - a lighter shade of blue. What you see looks much more like the darker Steel Blue that they put on the Mk Vs. No sign what-so-ever that it ever had factory decals but the stock Mink Blue is where it belongs (the original paint was never stripped off). All the lining looked like the Worksop hand, I've over lined it as much of it was missing. And the HT lugs are Bocama Super Professional long point lugs - never seen them on another Mk IV.

No collectors item, a rider and I love it. Great bike. I'm very luck to own one. Great thread too!!

Great bike 3. My '76 is "gassed up" and waiting in the shop until I finish my coffee. Then out for this morning's ride around the block (14miles). Great way to start the day. That British chrome just sparkles, after all these years. My Pro will turn 40 yrs old next month. I should bake a blue cake.

Thanks for the offer-it is a repaint (which is not holding well-lol) but it rocks for me right now. The price was right. Only a 20.5 frame/the headtube less than 4". I will keep that in mind/should I crash and burn-eeek.

I got this SBDU Team Pro up and running last fall, just in time for the rainy season.

.
...anyway, finally logging some miles on it now that it's dried out here a little bit.
