As manager at Ilkeston in the late 70's, Mike Mullet has to be the most qualified person to comment on whether Pergolizzi's bike is an Ilkeston bike or not.
I was just wondering one thing. I have seen Team framesets in late 70's catalogues that include blue Raleigh Team bicycles with a large circular bird DECAL on the head tube, NOT the traditional raleigh riveted badge.
(keep trying, lately yahoo! groups has been denying pix to many ...)
When were the oval bird decals used ?? These bikes have graphics very much like the 1977 RALEIGH and CARLTON bikes made at worksop.
