Thanks for the photo links. Saddle looks too nice for my current project so eBay away! Hope you can get some good bids. There was a similar saddle on my silver Sports when I got it. Currently I have a B67 on it.

If you still have it, what are you asking for the mattress saddle?

Thanks for the picture of the mudflap. I'll probably be going on the Tweed Ride.

You've got a couple of beautiful Raleigh Sports. Would you happen to have a close up photo of the black mudflap/reflector housing on your silver Sports? I have a similar silver Sports which is missing the black mudflap part and would like to see what it looked like up close. Thanks!
