1971 F4980 Professional UNK Champange Campagnolo/Weinmann Edward Hall NO PICTURE I own a 1970 (at least purchased from Raleigh dealer in 1970),formerly Striets Schwin of Gainesville,FL.

It is what they called Champange color (light brown with gold hand lettering). Original tires,full Campy Record.Serial no. F4980. with original Carlton pump. Raced it once and put it on the wall. Great shape.

1971 F7126 International 23.5" Chartreuse Campagnolo/Weinmann Jeff Kirby
Dothan, Alabama
PICTURE This is a frame-up build using original specification components that are period/year-correct. This frame was the victim of its components having been stripped of them at some time in the past. When purchased in an online auction, it had a no-name BB and headset indicating another life as some sort of bike. Both were replaced with Campagnolo Record. The frame still has original paint with only a few blemishes, those on the fork being covered with Reynolds 531 decals. Trim paint has been restored using a paint pen.
1972 63874 Grand Sports ? ? In restoration Andrew Davis NO PICTURE A few weeks ago I purchased a 1972 Raleigh Grand Sports from a gentleman in Rochester (NY) who was selling it on Craigslist. Supposedly the seller’s father was the original owner and the bike had been hanging in his barn/garage for the past 30+ years. I’m working on restoring it.
1972 347417 Super Course 21.5" Coffee Simplex derailleurs, Weinmann brakes, Stronglight crank, Brooks B15N saddle Bill Price PICTURE I purchased this bike of Craigslist in August 2010. The seller stated he got the bike as a gift from the original owner. Neither of them had ever ridden it.
1972 G1652 International 23.5" Champagne Campagnolo/Weinmann Jeff Kirby
Dothan, Alabama
PICTURE This bike was purchased in April from its original owner who maintained the bike very well. I also have the original; bill of sale. The bike was stored for over thirty years and retains all of its original components with exception of the shifters, which I installed to replace the dealer-installed Sun Tour bar end shifters, and Weinmann 700 concave rims that replaced the original 27” tubular rims allowing a wide choice of modern road clinchers. The paint is original.
1973 0078991 Super Course 23" Coffee Simplex/Weinmann Mark Alan Anderson PICTURE Paint is showing a fair amount of patina, but the bike is solid and the tubes intact, no bends or dings.

James L. Muller PICTURE I obtained this bike from Harris Cyclery in the late 1980's (I think) as a slightly abused frame with only fork, headset, stem, handlebar, brakes, seatpost. Someone had started a conversion to 6-speed but apparently abandoned the build. I first built it up with components acquired originally as upgrades to other bikes. Later I further upgraded the drivetrain.
1973 A4392 Competition (Mk.II) 21.5" Black Huret/Mafac Kurt Kaminer PICTURE Acquired this one in a trade. Frame and fork were badly out of alignment; they've been since cold-set back into place. Drivetrain is original. The rest has been built up at my whims, including the Mafac brakeset, which I feel is more complimentary to the Huret drivetrain than the original Weinmann 999s.
1973 G7743 International 57.5cm Chartreuse Campagnolo/Weinmann Justin Husman PICTURE All original as found, missing only the pump and toe clips. It has the "Capella" style lugs.
1973 G8973 RRA 22.5" White/goldenrod Campy NR/SR, Brooks Pro, Simplex Retrofriction shifters Chris Young PICTURE Built up new (1974) from a bare frame with components from the International I owned at the time.
1974 WS4000983 International 22.5" Copper (Orange) Campagnolo/Weinmann Philip Panageotes NO PICTURE Original owner - bike was purchased new in box 7-7-2011 from Suburban Sports, Berlin, CT. Had to purchase new tubulars as originals had dry-rotted after 37 years in the box. Close ratio 13 - 17 freewheel, Silca pump w/Campy head.
1974 WS4003968 Professional Mk.IV 25" Mink Blue/Silver Campagnolo NR David Truett PICTURE built up from bare frame purchased in 2006. Campy NR drivetrain, GB randonneur bars (with map), 3ttt stem, Mavic Module E rims.
1978 WD8004079 Professional Mk.V 22.5" Mink Blue/Silver Campagnolo Super Record, first-generation Kurt Kaminer PICTURE This 1978 Raleigh Professional Mk V came from a friend, who graciously gave me the right of first refusal. Built with a strange mix of early 1976 Super Record and other oddball Record parts.
1978 WD8005953 Professional Mk.V 23.5" Mink Blue/Silver Campagnolo Record early 80's except for a Stronglight BB & 104 crankset, Cinelli bar & stem Jim Carter PICTURE CyclArt repaint c1987, with additional braze-ons and TT cable routing.
1978 WM8002136 Professional Mk.V 23"/TH> Mink Blue/Silver N/A Russell Duncan PICTURE As you can see it is in sad shape paint-wise but the frame is generally in good shape. I recently purchased this frame on ebay in December 2011 for less than $200.00 U.S., which may have been somewhat overpriced but I was happy to purchase it and look forward to building it up to a period correct build using appropriate-aged Campagnolo Record/Super Record components and Cinelli bar and stem, with the exception of a Phil Wood bottom bracket. My plans for restoring the frame do not include an original paint scheme. I already own a Waterford 1200 with a similar blue paint scheme. So, I was thinking of some bi-colored paint job with two panels. I'm not interested in restoring it to its original state as an investment. At the moment I am thinking of a black primary color with a red head tube and a red half panel on the seat tube to highlight the Raleigh headbadge and the Carleton decal. To the extent possible, I will have the right decals restored along with the paint scheme of my choice. I am not sure who will be doing the paintwork but it will be through a builder such as Tom Wojcik who I contracted with to check the frame's alignment and metal integrity. I also plan on adding a few braze-ons, specifically seat tube water bottle bosses and a pump-peg on the head-tube. I do not plan on adding braze-ons for the shift levers or front derailleur.
1979 WE9003371 Professional Mk.V 24.5" Mink Blue/Silver Campagnolo Nuovo Record Grant Huglin PICTURE I took one look at the color of this bike and had to have it. I bought the raw frame and forks from D&J Cycles in Beaverton, Oregon in 1982 intending to build up a bike on-the-cheap, rather than restoring its original components. Looking at what’s ended up on the bike, it seems to have gone more toward the restoration route.
1983 WB3801422 Rapide (U.K. only) 23" Pearl Campagnolo Record early 80's except for a Stronglight BB & 104 crankset, Cinelli bar & stem James Weber
