Early to mid 70's Raleigh Pros (not Team Pro), including mine, had a TTT Record stem with the more faimiliar version of the GB map of Britain bars, no gold anodizing. The odd thing is the TTT stems were 26.0 mm, while the GB bars were 25.4 mm. They didn't fuss with shims, just tightened down the stem.

I suppose the sleeve threw me off, I wwas thinking it was a newer version. The bars on the CR page are older I take it? http://www.classicrendezvous.com/British/GB/GB.htm

My TTT Record stem with the TTT Competizione bar still look good on my Raleigh Pro.

Pete... I think the bars shown in the CR list are the same as on the eBay auction. And the same ones I fitted to my former '77 Competition GS. It's just that the date of introduction is incorrect. These bars date at least to 1973 to my knowledge, not the late '70s. I think they were the last new GB bars introduced.

Apparently, there are Raleigh Pros (not Team Pros) with this GB/3TTT combo, just no one seems to have what I've fitted from the actually stated specs on a Team Pro.

So much of this is conjecture... Raleigh seemed to use all manner of stems including GB Biba stems which look more like what's shown in the catalogues and their own Raleigh marked ones. And many of the bars are unmarked.

Me, I think the gold anodised GB bars would looked rather nice paired with Mavic d'Oro rims which indeed were fitted to some Team Pros c. 1976

And, of course, I am keen to have ONE British-made component on this Raleigh other than the Brooks saddle!
