Subject: [CR]1984[?] Raleigh 753

I have a Raleigh made from 753 tubing that was originally painted with a Betsy Ross red main triangle with sans-serif white letters for 'RALEIGH' on down tubes only, dark blue front fork and rear triangle with decalled groups of three small descending-in-size white stars going down the sides of the forks and the sides of the seat stays. The seat lug has a handsome fastback design and it has a Cinelli BB. I think that it was made for the American market for the 1984 Olympics in LA and it has Nottingham on the badge. Can anyone confirm what year this frame was built; if this was first year they used 753; if it was it actually produced at the Carlton shop; the correct model name [Pro?] and of course any other info??

Thanks,
