I'd say 80s.

That's the sort of bike that would've sent me into a fit of fury as a teenager - a sensible Raleigh! However looking at it now the bike has a certain charm, esp with the chainguard and bars. Looks nice and clean too...

There is some info out there about frame numbers, particularly initial letters for date and country. From what I can see I suspect it's from the far east. There may be a date on the hub shell.

I think you are right chris, well into the eastern Raleighs.
