I recently bought a few Raleigh parts that used to be a ladies bike. I’d like to roughly (at least) date it
Seller had caked frame in horrid thick black paint so can’t see any serial number & no rear wheel to check student hub date. Front wheel cleaned up nicely and has Sturmey Archer England F230 26x1 3/8 stamped into it.
Anyone recognise this?

If you have removed the front wheel put it back with the fixed cone on the right side. The adjustable cone goes on the left side. If it's the wrong way around the adjustable cone can self tighten due to precession and destroy the hub pretty quickly.
At the last count:- Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa.
