Thanks. I did not like these In The Day, as I thought they looked gaudy and vulgar compared to the elegant mink blue and silver Professional MkIV. But they've grown on me, especially after an exquisite one someone, I think Eric Elman, had at Larz a couple of yeras ago. I acquired one with pretty trashed paint last year in an eBay auction by a seller who did not know what model it was. It may make it to the top of my restoration list soon. Anyone know how they decided on this paint scheme for the team bikes? It's neither British nor Dutch colors.

More constructively, I have posted a new set of photos (mainly to show off the Mavic SSC blue rims I finally for this bike!) of my 1980 Raleigh Team Pro (753) in my Wool Jersey together with a new write-up of this machine:
