Hey thanks Guys

240 thanks for the pics... I might hold out and see what else pops up...

RR mentioned that the Carlton Comp were a very similar if not exactly the same frame so will consider those also


Cheers

I dont know my Raleigh history well enough, but is this worth a look? Size is only a little short in the ST.

Hey thanks guys...

Am watching most sites to see what pops up...

Main reason I am chasing the early 70's Comp frame is for the build quality and nervex and Capella lugsets....

The project I have planned has pretty specific requirements.....

Thanks for ya help

So you know all those bikes wore Carlton down tube logo's when imported here in Oz. Otherwise identical to Raleigh.

I've seen a Super Course locally but it's a lot funky and seemed to be a little less than well built/rough around the edges. If I can work out how to contact the owner (it's been a few years since I've seen it) .. i'll holla. From memory is was around 56cm'ish.

Yes I have recently been told that.... And the finish and quality seems really hit and miss.... Seen some very well built framesets and then some very ruff ones...

I have a Raleigh Super Course Mk II frame and fork. 1976 in rough condition with a 62 seat tube. Too big?
