That numbering system started in 1973, so it would have to be 1980. Here's a scan of the original notice to dealers Http://www.mindspring.com/~sblackstone/sn.jpg

As you can see, it applies to quite a few factories as well, not just worksop, and not just 531 and 753 frames like retro Raleighs says. (Did Worksop make any 753 frames?)

Wayne - being in NZ do you ever see a Raleigh lightweight with the "M" code for the Malaysia factory? Or did that one only make stuff like 3 speeds?

Hi all, after trolling the net, is it safe to say that my serial number, WM0006677 4 means that its made in Worksop in september of 1976 and is #677?, the 4 I've not been able to ID that, if you want a pic I'll take one............regards wayne davidson Invers NZ...........
