One step up, but not as pretty. Can't get over the beautiful condition of your Alyeska. Plus, I'd rank that color combination up there with mid-'60 Frejus bikes, which might be the prettiest bikes ever. I'll bet you sit around looking at it a lot. I would.

To answer your earlier question about the Raleigh-branded accessories, the Raleigh straps and bottles came with the bikes during the Raleigh USA era. We used to stock the bottles in the shop, but not the toe straps and toe clips, I think. Still have some odds and ends Raleigh stuff around the house, though---a mid-'80s Raleigh Technium T-shirt and a wind jacket in red, yellow, and black Raleigh team colors from the mid-'70s.
