I'm not 100% certain on this, and would appreciate help here, but I always thought that the brown Raleigh Pro color was the "Mink" color, not the blue. After all, Mink's are little brown animals, are they not? Mine is brown, and I always thought it was the mink color, mainly because that's what they said they were at the Raleigh dealer, and that's what all of the Raleigh Pro owners called it in the early 70's. I believe the blue had a different name. Does anyone out there have original brochure information?
