Dutch Made Raleigh Grand Prix, Gazzelle factory.
Raleigh Grand Prixs were manufactured in Holland and Ireland besides the Nottingham bikes. Later on into the late '70s and early '80s, perhaps some came from the Far East but I'm not positive about this. Grand Prixs were also made and continue to be a Mark name for the Raleigh USA company. Though rarer, Raleigh Grand Prixs in the early '90s used experimental aluminum tubing that the Technium model is known for. Latter day Raleigh Grand Prixs definitely were upgraded in to a Premium bike versus those shown largely in this blog which highlights the '70s era more.
