RALEIGH 3-speed ID

Just out of curiosity, b/c it looks kind of snazzy:

Cheers to all the Raleigh-philes about.

Okay, you've got me. Of course I'd like you to explain the etiology to me, Kurt.

Looks like an excellent deal on a well-kept, low-mileage Raleigh.

That is questionable - did you notice the Shimano Positron?

SA? Did Raleigh ever make a mixte equipped with SA? Women's frame yes, mixte no.

1980's machine with 5-speed Positron. Curiously enough, it features the chainguard as used on the '60s Sprites, yet the frameset and those decals scream late '80s.

I suspect this as being an early '80s Nottingham-made Raleigh for the U.K. market. Looks traditional, yet the components date it to after the Huffy takeover.
