This popped up today on my local craigslist...
Vintage 78 Raleigh Competition GS with Campy...
Guy is asking $875... which I think seem very high... I did a ebay search and found similar bikes selling for $450-600.
I'm not interested in buying the bike but thought someone on the forum might... happy to go check it out in person and ship it if the seller will not ship.
see add and link below... I do not own this bike or have any relation to the person that is selling it.

I am the original owner of this mint condition 25-inch (64 cm) frame-size Raleigh Competition GS bike. I bought it new in San Francisco in April 1979. The frame was made in England by Carlton. Before I rode it I had the brakes and crank set upgraded to Campagnolo Record equipment. The original sales receipt, warranty and maintenance book come with the bike. Also included is the Silca tire pump bought with the bike. The tires are Continental but are getting old. Believe it or not,this bike has been ridden less than 3500 miles! All equipment on it is original from the day I bought it. The bike has never been crashed. Its paint and decals are in excellent condition. All components work well. The Brooks saddle is like new.
