Raleigh Competition GS Decal help

I recently picked up a 1977 Raleigh Competition GS for restoration. Itís missing what appears to be a triangular shaped decal on the seat tube just above the bottom bracket.

Can anybody identify which decal was used?

Probably the Carlton Race Proved decal, also found on non-531 forks.


That image is from H. Lloyd Cycles in the UK: https://h-lloyd-cycles.myshopify.com...riced-per-pair

Thanks Jim, I think that’s the decal I’m looking for. I was wondering because of the different shades I saw in internet photos.

Also thanks for your Bertin pages. Lots of great info there for inspiration and the website is a pleasure to navigate.

I have a 1977 Competition GS in black that was a November bike. It has that sticker just above the bottom bracket. It is 80% there and looks just like the sticker shown. My forks have the Reynolds 531 triangles. Joe joesvintageroadbikes.wordpress

Joe - enjoyed your website. I’ll revisit your pages when inspiration is needed to carry on with the restoration - my GS has alot of patina.
