1973 -74 Raleigh Professional pista / track frame and fork in great used condition. Model DL175 in classic red, white, and blue paint scheme. Missing DT decals, and others are partially there. Lots of small nicks and chips in paint. Frame and fork are in alignment, never crashed.
Built with Reynolds 531 DB tubing. Fork crown is factory drilled to accept a side pull caliper brake. 54 CM seat tube CTC (56CM CTT). Chrome plated head lugs, partial rear triangle, fork crown, and partial fork blades, no real corrosion to speak of, a couple small spots of peppering, overall great shape.Rear drop outs are factory drilled for aesthetic / lightening. Campagnolo ends front and rear.
Takes a 27.2 size seat post. Steerer was slightly bulged from overtightening a stem. It is intact, NOT cracked or anything.
Steerer was rolled in frame blocks with mandrill in steerer to repair and is much better now, you can still slightly feel it with your fingers. Steerer threads were then chased with a die to clean them up. Headset and stem were re-installed and felt great and tightened up fine.
Fork has classic Raleigh pista crown (26.4 seat diameter) with reinforcing tangs. Has the "CC" BB shell cutouts. Shell also has a Capital "S" stamped on it between the chain stays. BB shell was faced and the English threads chased with taps.NO internal tube corrosion as far as I can see. Rear brake bridge is NOT drilled for a brake. This is not a show quality bike. It will build into a solid rider / winter training bike or messenger bike. Excellent addition to your stable / collection. Please check out my other items.
