Not only is Raleigh one of the oldest cycling brands of the world but it is also popular for its racing heritage. At the peak of sportive triumph stood the Dutch cycling Team TI Raleigh which was extremely successful from the 1970s to the 1980s. Many famous champions rode in this équipe, among them Joop Zoetemelk, Jan Raas, Gerrie Knetemann, Hennie Kuiper, Dave Lloyd, Urs Freuler, Johan van der Velde and Didi Thurau.
Success does not come without fans and admirers who are keen to identify themselves with the stars and some marketing to feed their needs. In these years several 10- and 12-speed models tried to give amateurs and professionals alike the possibility to join the ranks of Raleigh road bike racers and especially the team coloured bikes sold very well.
This particular Raleigh Record is one of those bikes. The frame and its stays were built using Raleigh 531 butted tubes and was painted in the typical Team Raleigh colours. As for the parts, the bike is equipped with a blend of quality and reliable parts from Shimano 600 groupset.
