    Raleigh Century

    Hi, folks...I recently acquired a Raleigh Century and I assume it's too recent a model to ask about in the Classic and Vintage forum, so I wonder if anyone here knows about this model? I can't find any mention of it anywhere online including the Raleigh company site and the Raleigh pages maintained by Sheldon Brown. The Raleigh company's centenary was in 1987, so I wonder if it dates from that era? It's a heavy brute and it is distinguished by having a Brooks B72 seat, which is one reason why I bought it.
    Thanks
    Robert
