Looking for information about my ALAN from the 80's

Hello everyone,

So, last sunday I've bought a blue ALAN racing cycle from Marktplaats, the Dutch equivalent of Ebay/Craigslist. I have been interested in ALAN bikes for some time now, absolutely love the way these bikes look. I am absolutely thrilled i've been able to buy this one, since it's in great condition and has got most of it's original parts! The stearing head lug is free of cracks as far as i've been able to tell. Can't find anything wrong with the other joining parts. The seller told me it was his first racing bike and he bought it himself in 1980/81! So, I'm feeling lucky.

From my evenings browsing the web searching for information about ALAN bikes i've learned that the numbers engraved on the seattube tells when it was made. Mine reads 'N380'. So, it was made in march of 1980 I believe. But, my question is what the model name of this frame could be. I can't make anything of the letter N, as most of the model names don't start with this letter. I've enclosed some pictures in the links below, hoping anyone can tell me some more.

Any information you are able to give is very much appreciated!! Thank you,

Sander
