It might not even be a Raleigh but was certainly made in their factory!

Here it is as bought - with bent forks

now, as it looked today before I took it for a respray (with 1984 Sun behind it) it's going to be ivory with burgundy lugs, gold NOS Raleigh downtube decals... I have some NOS chrome forks sorted...

... and a rear mech from this very poorly '70s Raleigh (sadly some of this had to be chucked as beyond repair, the frame is going to be a wall hanger!)

Good to see an old Olympus from 76. I had one of those then, it cost £61.00 and I remember riding it home from the shop pleased as punch.
