Raleigh USA Technium

What years were the Raleigh USA Technium serie produced? Are there any catalog scans from '87 onward?

Nope, I checked.

You might find some good solid info (or baseless conjecture) on a particular Technium bike by checking out this thread: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...m-technia.html

The Technium series was introduced for the 1986 model year. IIRC, 1992 was the last year for Technium, While Raleigh USA continued to market bonded frames after that, they didn't have the Technium label.

There are a few extant catalogs available online. I've got some, a few price lists, several road tests and lots of advertisements. If you're looking for information on a bicycle you own, the serial number will tell us the exact build date, Between that and the components we should be able to identify the year, model and then track down OEM specs.

Can you determine the year of R910020038? It's steel tubed, alloy lugged (suspect it's 753 tubing) with front derailleur braze on, downtube bosses, internal brake cable routing and a chain hanger. Suspect it's a Team, but the year is vexing - unless the 91 part of the serial number indicates 1991 (which was my first inclination, but someone who I think knows better than I said it isn't that straightforward).

Yes, it is a 1992. First and fifth digit indicates year of manufacture. (cable housing entry through left side of top tube confirms '88-and later).
It was made on the one-hundredth day of the year (4/10) and was the thirty-eighth bike built on that shift.
