Thank you to all to responded to my request for advice as to whether I should buy a Pro MkV for 250 even though its a little large for me (24.5"). Following the 5 to 1 consensus of the responders I went ahead and got it. I will have fun refurbishing even if I decide not to keep it. One detail of notice, both the fork and rear Campy dropouts have eyelets. I can't tell from the Retro-Raleigh website if this is correct but I find it strange...and no, the bike appears to be original and not counterfeit.
