Maybe, but there's two catalog pages where the bike is a near 100% match. If I get a chance to buy it or at least take a look at it I'll report back to the forum to confirm/deny that these 753 Raleighs are out there to be found.

I think youíre right. I didnít click on the second catalog image. Looks like it is a match. Thatís an interesting one!

if it DOES turn out to be real, your girlfriend should come around to appreciating your business BRILLIANCE when this appreciates in value (crappy decals or not)...so how can you lose?

no kidding! $1100 is WAY too high for Aelle, filth and some of the fuggliest bar tape i have seen in years!
But since it was used with (more fuggly) "triathlete bars" the paint defect on downtube (if that's what you ref) could be just from sweat, but another indicator to any potential buyer: "caveat emptor, dude!"

NOTE: nice and good for e-bikes but pay attention to the lock block assembly that controls the rotation of adjustable linkage clamp head. When raised we usually lock that rotation with the front wheel down a bit. When you lower this beast to put the bike back on the floor you MUST loosen that lock block assembly first or the motors will drive the bike into the floor and force rotate that block, wiping the interface on the linkage clamp. No repair possible and a very expensive part to replace. Iíve seen a few. A stupid design.

If youíre looking at a used stand, pull the linkage clamp head out and inspect it.
