Identifying a frame

Postby neilochx » Tue Apr 09, 2013 09:32 am

I´ve bought a bike with an "aluminium frame" , it´s second hand, has had a paint job, and was a very good price. Is there anyway of identifying what model the frame is.

Thanks

You could probs post a few pics on here and maybe someone will know.

Are there any serial numbers or markings on the underside of the bottom bracket shell?

Wrong, it's a Raleigh. One of the ones "Made in Nottingham".
