Raleigh Pro bottom bracket cutouts?I bought a 1973 new at Agee's in Richmond Va. that had none.In 1975 I replaced that tall frame with a 1972,which also had no cut outs. Conclusion,some do,and some do not!This is probably not true of the later ones,as the demand faded. Harris Spracher Waynesboro,Va.

You can ID the year of your frame by it's serial number and then referencing this chart at the this link:
The last year for the "Brampton" fastback was 1977 (maybe early 1978?) based on seeing the non-fastback version for sale in shops during 1978.
Can't help with the BB cutouts, but I am curious too.
