I've already put some photographs of my Raleigh Road Ace elsewhere on a cycling blog so, if it's not bad form to link to another web site, perhaps you'd like to have a look at my old bike:

Looks very nice, I had / have a very similar Road Ace which was the slightly later 600 SIS system (same pedals, brakes, chainset colours etc).

Mine sustained a bit of damage and was respayed around 1991 or so, many happy memories of the bike and it still lives on, currently lives with my sister as we sometimes do the London to Brighton bike ride together.

Nice bike :)

Cheers, DA-EVO. Still haven't ridden the Road Ace since my last post. I had the idea of riding it whilst wearing my 80s Raleigh and Reynolds 531 cycling clobber. But the plan to fit in to those clothes again is still, ahem, ongoing...

Very nice bike! this a classic racer. My grandfather used to have this
he used that bike during the 1984 Asian Games. But unfortunately he
lost to a Chinese and went on to grab the second place.
