Shane, good find. I bought a Raleigh GP off ebay au a couple of months ago which is almost identical to that one. It's partway through being changed around a bit, but the bike itself is solid, a great rider, with good geometry. Mine has a rack, panniers, and full fenders. It will be my hauling/touring/rain bike hopefully.
The bike probably comes with alloy Normandy hubs, Raleigh badged Weinmann brakes (which are great, btw), alloy bar and stem etc. Steel 27 * 1 1/4" rims are being replaced by 700s on mine for tyre availability.
I'd suggest picking that one up.
edit: I think mine is a 1977. It came with different brake levers.
