I've never seen this model before. It's absolutely gorgeous. Love that bar bag, too!

I'm hoping to renovate my 80s touring bike during the summer. After seeing your Raleigh I think I'll go for a black finish to the paintwork. Thanks for sharing the photographs of your lovely bike.

Used to have one myself, but it was pearl white with a bluish tinge, with blue box lining and equipped with SR Sakae components mostly. I think it was the '82 model. Sadly it cracked around the lower seat tube above the BB shell from massive internal rust (it was a neglected giveaway when I got it... and required cold setting of a bent fork blade), but I'll never forget how light and quick off the mark it was, and the cutout Prugnant lugs were very neat & desirable. A sad loss.
