    The hub and the dyno hub are marked 1962.
    But on the 1962 catalog the brakes are with cables.
    Where am I wrong?

    It's bit different than the Dawn bikes. This bike has rear-facing fork-ends in back, bolt-up seat stays, and Westwood rather than Raleigh Patent/Westrick rims. The Dawn series has a Sports-type frame and Sports-type wheels.

    Are the wheels on your bike 28 or 26 inch?

    There are a number of Raleigh models that were sold in other countries and not aimed at the U.S. market. These often are older-looking than they actually are. 1962 is probably right for this bike, and it's one of those foreign Raleigh models.

    I think I've actually seen this bike for sale online, but that it was local pick-up only. I tried to buy it, but the guy didn't seem to want to ship (?). Are you selling this bike? I might be interested if you are. I have no winter project yet.

    Nice - I like that frame size with 28 inch wheels. Sent you a PM about it - maybe we can work something out for it.

    I don't know if this one was for sale on-line.
    I was in a three hours trip for a Raleigh Fireball, and the guy showed me this one, which was too cool to pass. So I pass a Schwinn Spitfire and I bought the Raleigh.
