Doh, sorry. I looked at that Cyclone ad and saw 3 pulleys. And as the fog lifts, I think the 3 pulley Cyclone was a 6200. Fading memories.

Wonderful bike. Dutch market, possibly even assembled in Holland by Gazelle with Raleigh parts. The rims aren't Dunlops so likely dutch too. I think BSA's have the nicest fork crowns. Congrats.
