This one just wandered in to WHWR (Wahoonc's Home for Wayward Raleighs) It appears to be an early to mid 80's Canadian built model, sold from a bike shop in Ottawa, ON. Byshe Roe?

Any ideas on the actual year?

A bit of the back story; it had sat at the local bicycle charity for 2-3 years and no one wanted it, a youngster at the LBS got it with the idea of converting it to a fixie, but was turned off by the rust on the lugs. I was in the LBS yesterday picking up a bunch of parts I had ordered in for other projects, and the shop manager comes out with it and hands it over. He knows I like old bikes in general and British bikes in particular, that is the third one in the past year or so. If I don't rescue them they will be tossed in the dumpster.

Not sure what I am going to do with it, for now it will get hung in the back of the shed.
