Hello Warren: I own a 1986 Raleigh Prestige frame (54 cm) that was sold as a frameset only and manufactured in England. I wonder how similar our two frames are. Your website refuses to enlarge pictures when they are clicked on, so I am only guessing that the frames much alike. Mine has the same 531C decals (fork blades, stays, and butted frame tubes). The fork crown seems to be the same sloping variety. My dropouts are all Campy, and the lugs are all short point with little filing. The headbadge reads Raleigh of America, but other stickers indicate "made in England". The wheelbase is 39.25 inch for the 54 cm frame, and the top tube is 21.25 (C to C). Mine is all Superbe Pro and Cinelli, but I dearly wished to find a Campy NR, however I happened upon this one, which probably is at least as functional derailleur and bearing wise. Does your frame sort of sound like mine? Garth in Surfside Fl. and former San Francisco resident and former San Diego resident.
