Raleigh Pulsar maybe? Its got a space shuttle sticker on-what more could a man want!
Heavily patina'ed! running shimano hub gears-8K miles on a sandy salty commute with nothing but a greasing of the cones and a slosh out. The sand and salt has rusted almost everything on the bike but she rides sweet. No squeeks, rattles or mis shifts. Shimano dual pivot long drops take car of the stopping.

Though I think I might still slightly prefer the very spacey blue and white.

some mutual decal envy going on for sure. yours is massive, and gold and thats never bad.
I'll try and get a shot of the other side of mine which is identical but says "aerospace contour" under it-which presumably refers to the gas pipe downtube that is slightly oval shaped to eek every last watt out of this high tech machine.

Goes without saying, this is kept in the office.
