Raleigh USA

Found a gallery stashed on my HD with images from one of the Raleigh Team USA bikes I used to have. I got two of them in a local buy but unfortunately one was too large and the other two small. So after cleaning them up I moved them on to new owners. I'd still like to find one in my size just for how cool they look. Anyway, posting the images here before they get lost on my computer again.

The crankset (which I think is an SR) look like an almost literal copy of the Ofmega Mistral crankset. It's amazing how they got away with copying the Ofmega......but there it is.......
Frankly, though, the Mistral actually became more popular, years after they ceased producing it, as some found it a bit too "jazzy" looking for the times when it was introduced. More were interested in the more austere area designs back then, like the Edco Competition and the then emerging C Record and even the aesthetically controversial, Mavic Starfish.

The frames were the real jewel in the mix. Still curse the 84 yr with the Shimano proprietary shift braze on.

Thanks for including these pics for future resources.

Same look; but whole different animal. All top-end on the eBay bike, all entry level on OP's. They both look fantastic, though. It would be a very cool experience to ride them side by side for the comparison. 753 vs 555 showdown!

So true, I actually prefer the paint scheme on the ones I posted. That's the appeal for me to be honest.

Yup. I just thought OP might want an upgrade.

I've got one I need to send out for a dropout replacement.

Very very cool bikes. I actually like the 555 and the components are quite capable. Can't beat the scheme.
