Okay, thanks for the thoughts. I was thinking much the same things, just looking for confirmation.
BTW, both frames have similar components: steel bars, old Suntour derailers, alloy cranks, rear steel wheel. It wasn't just the weight itself, either--the Raleigh frame just felt more balanced; and actually, it seemed a bit lighter than some of the older chromo bikes with alloy wheels I've handled.
