This '83 Raleigh Professional is a great snapshot of a pro's bike. Here's how owner Sean O'Harrow of Cambridge, England, describes it:

In 1983/4 the US Olympic Team ordered 25 frames from Raleigh in
Nottinghamshire (UK), but took possession of only 24. This one is number
25 and was built up in 1985 for Denys Riley, who was Works Manager for
Raleigh at the time (unfortunately for him, he was the man who had to
close down the factory!), to do the London to Brighton annual cycle run.
Riley had it painted in the Raleigh-Panasonic professional team colours
in the same year that Phil Anderson did so well for that team (when he
won the Dauphine Libere, Tour of Switzerland, Tour of the Med, GP of
Frankfurt, etc.). It is a Raleigh Professional with completely original
equipment, including full Campagnolo (original world-logo hoods),
Reynolds 531c tubing, Mavic GP4 rims, and Isca Selle Tornado saddle. I
have put on modern Continental sew-ups so I can ride it, but I have kept
the original Clements.
