Regarding the date of the Raleigh Competition --

The photos show Reynolds stickers with gold borders and the TI logo.

It's my vague recollection that Reynolds stickers added the extra-wide gold border (at the bottom of the main tube sticker, and at the top of the fork blade sticker) circa 74, and added the TI logo circa 78, which would make this a late seventies frame if the stickers are original.

Does anybody have better tracking on the changes in Reynolds stickers?

The Retroraleigh.com catalogs never show a Competition in this color, maybe they are US market only. Can anyone shed light on this- I asked but haven't heard back from the seller.
