Hello, I'm trying to determine the year of my Raleigh Sports 3 spd commuter. I was told when purchased that it was a 1956. I've yet to locate a serial #, but the markings on the rear hub are 69 47 AW (if my memory serves me). Any ideas on determining the year, I will provide photos in the future. Thanks, Neal

I realize this is late, here are a few resources that helped me. The second site has lots of pictures. I was able to determine that the frame of my DL-1 was built in Nottingham in 1975, but the rear hub was made in 1974.
