Risers and deep V's were the "right parts".

Those aren't deep vees...

Those aren't deep vees...

I stand corrected

I stand corrected. I'm ashamed of myself for missing that, especially when I'm a Mavic buff, and the fact that they don't even resemble deep v's. I guess I just didn't agree with the build, but to each his own.

Beautiful bike! What kind of

Beautiful bike!
What kind of toe clips/straps are you using?

this bike is beautiful. I've

this bike is beautiful. I've always loved the vintage Raleigh track frames. You've done some really great work !


Hey your bike is very megatron! I also wanna know what tires you ride. Can't find it in the comments, brainfreeze.

Nice pics

Great lighting and PP, sick bike


Bring your bike down next time you're in town...


Hey, what tires are those?

Great pics, awesome bike.

I just finished my 1975 Pro Track and for a while, I was jealous of the older red/blue frames like this, but my "ugly and proud" team colors have grown on me. I have Cinelli #14 drops but do like to rock risers and clinchers on the street sometimes so, inspired by your sweet stem/bar set up, I looked for a Nitto reversible stem as well. I found one from the 70's that I thought was different than this one, but taking a second look, Its the same one. What an awesome stem for a riser setup. -Sugary_Otis

Likely not a '75

Beautiful bike. I have one, too, but am selling on E-bay because I need the cash. See:

I believe you're off a year or two on your frame, if that matters to you.

The '75 and '76 Raleigh Professional Tracks were orange and yellow:

The '73-'74 Pro's were red and blue, like yours:


xprmntl is right

It's the earlier Raleigh Pro Track for sure. 75 and on had the red/yellow/black Team Colors with later Team colors working in BLACK via the headtube. Regardless, this is one of the standout bikes on Velospace, obviously a fixed gear establishment, even as fixed gear has become a "Thing" more than anyone imagined (almost painfully so). Ironically, or not, it's bikes like THIS that make the ones that will begin appearing at Wal-Mart and Target seem like ersatz paw prints. While I might prefer drops, this is one helluva frame and just an uber classic.

my local shop has one of these frames in,

but it is a 1965. I am going to go grab it asap, hopefully.

Beautiful bike by the way! I hope mine comes out as well as yours!

I saw your bike on here..

And thought, "Wow, this is what my bike would look like if it was actually nice... and not a conversion..."


This bike is perfect. Classy... very
