Evening Listers & Listerettes,

I looked at a Raleigh Pro today, shown by the original owner. He is a 75 year old gentleman who suffered a stroke in 1990 and has not ridden the bike since before that date. He doesn't remember if he bought the bike in 1970 or 1971! How can I tell the two years apart? The NR rear derailleur has 'patent-70' and the bike has Brooks toe clips.

Any assistance in dating???? I didn't go looking for the serial number, but I'm sure he would allow me to come back for another inspection.

He's not sure if he's selling (and it's near enough to my size to make me want it!!!)!!!!!

Thanks,
