What Raleigh did I buy

looks like a sprite but the downtube shifters are a bit of an oddity for a flat bar.
don't think you are going to find a frame number under that paint either. :(

mount of the right fork leg is for an ever ready light.
ah thanks for the info

I don't think it's a GP. wrong seat stay join, the GP has an inverted fillet. the fork crown isn't right either.
I have a Carlton GP from 78 in the loft that was the same frame hence I'm not convinced. they did share the main lugs and I've seen GP's with different lugs so it's possible I guess.
