Note that the serial number information below is fragmentary and incomplete, and many bikes have proven to be much newer than the serial numbers would suggest. It appears that Raleigh recycled many of the older serial numbers in later years, so there are lots of bikes from the 60s and 70s that have serial numbers that would suggest much greater age.
Most older Sturmey-Archer hubs have two or three-letter model codes, which are usually stamped onto the hub shell.

Are you seeking an appraisal? Click here. What this chart is intended to be: This chart has been developed as an additional reference guide more so then simply dating off Sturmey-Archer hubs for the positive identification of Raleigh frames and entire bicycles. As proper factory documentation is very limited, the following charts are a constant work in progress; they have been compiled by examining numerous Raleigh frames from each period, component date codes, decal schemes, color availabilities per year; and – occasionally – official papers.
That said, these charts are representative of U. There isn’t enough data to claim either option as absolute. Keep in mind that these charts are incomplete, and there is a reasonably wide margin of error between serial cutoff dates. Nevertheless, please put your mind at ease – these serial charts have been checked, re-checked, and are as accurate as I can provide at their time of publication.
If new information is found, these charts will be duly updated to reflect such. Otherwise, you might accidentally misidentify your Raleigh bicycle. If your Raleigh is equipped with a Sturmey-Archer rear hub that you suspect has not been been changed, check the date code on the hub’s shell as well for additional verification. I have put considerable effort into keeping these charts accurate, and – as stated before – not all of them are finalized.
