Default 1955-64? Raleigh Sports :: Dump Find

Found a very rusty Raleigh leaning up next to a dumpster near the airport today. I haven't been able to pinpoint what year yet, but it was made in Nottingham. The front rim is original, but the back hub has been replaced, so no date help there. Looked in the other usual places for S# but no luck. Maybe I'll find something when I get it out into the daylight and start to break her down. She does have a perfect V frame, but it will have to be sandblasted. I may be able to spare the fenders, but I'm not planning to use them. Who knows? Looks like another project for me. I'd post some pictures but my wife is on holiday with the camera... and not me.
I may be slow, but I'm not very accurate.
