SB4059

SB4059 is a mid to late 1980 Team Pro 753 Road frame built with Reynolds 753 Metric Tubing. This is the frame that started the blog. My research into this frame formed the basis of the information I was sharing about the SBDU. It is built to a 1980/82 TI-Raleigh Team spec, both detailed by Gerald O’Donovan.

SBDU Ilkeston SB6827 1984 Reynolds 531c Campagnolo Super Record Road Bike

SB6827 Reynolds 531c and Campagnolo Super Record – Unridden

SB6827

An SBDU frame built at Ilkeston in 1984. It was bought and started a new life in Denmark and built into a bike over the following two years. Once it was built, the owner could not bring himself to ride it, so it was stored in a spare room in the house. It returned back to the UK and into my collection when I purchased the complete bike earlier in 2018.

SB8790 1987 SBDU Nottingham 531c Lo Pro Road Frameset

An Original and Unridden SBDU Nottingham 1987 531c Low Profile Time Trial Frame

SB8790

A beautiful low profile Raleigh in Reynolds 531c tubing dating to 1987. Another Nottingham SBDU frame. This frame was ordered and shipped to Australia. It returned to the UK about 15 to 20 years ago with it’s original owner. This frame was built into a bike but never ridden. Although it has travelled around the world, it is still factory fresh and in superb “as new” condition and still has its original Raleigh frame box.
