Nice bike! Peter Kohler wrote an excellent article on Raleigh Pro history. Not able to find at the moment but you should be able to use search engine to find. Keep us updated on progress!

Very nice!
I love the Raleigh Professional model.
I bought a Competition G.S. in 1981, and it saved my life.
I had been partying pretty hard in those days, and I had decided that I needed to do something different, so I walked into the bike shop, and fell in love with the Carlton built Raleigh’s.
The Team & Professional models were the top dogs, but the Competition G.S. fit my budget at the time, so that’s the one I walked out with.
I put a lot of miles on that bike, so I’ll always have an affinity for those bikes.
Yours is beautiful!
Congrats!

Thanks the color it what struck me then I realized it was a professional and had to have it then I found out it was a one owner not mint but a nice original bike and came with extra set of Campagnolo hi flange wheels to go with a campagnolo low flange pair already on it and was sold

Look Ma, No Hands!
Yes, the color is classic and the frame looks my size (so I am jealous). 24 1/2???
The freewheel even has a big cog to suit my terrain.
Good find.

Never had a Pro but liked a late '70s Competition (briefly), and the '72 SuperCourse was fun, too.

Would love to see more pics in natural light when you can. Mink&Silver is beautiful, patina looks earned.

the full sloping crown on the Professional models is a Davis item while the one employed for the Competition and Super Tourer models is a Harrington

Harringtons are easy to spot due to their thinness midway between the socket for the steerer and those for the blades
