Interesting, but huge bike. The parts look pretty cheap, but the frame doesn't appear to have the mudguard eyes on the dropouts that might be expected on the cheaper raleigh models with this paintjob. What do you think?. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-CLASSIC- ... 35b862245f

Looks like a later Europa to me.

Earlier Europa's had a yellow head tube and a Black raleigh steel chain set but not a lot of brazed on extra's.

Blimey they looked good on the shop floor in good lighting and sold very well in the mid 70's LOL

That looks like a later version with alloy components and a black headtube....not sure it was called a Europa by then as Raleigh tried to get the word "Team" into their bikes.... "Team Record" rings a bell LOL
