Appreciate the effort, but I'm afraid you're talking a fairly modern tourer (notice the date on the passport is 1997), while the bike I've got here is 1969.

On the other hand . . . . . being totally unfamiliar with the bike (it's from the 28 year period that I dropped out of cycling completely), that is one sweet touring bike. Definitely something in my style, should I decide that I'd like to own a bagger more modern than my 69 Magneet.

Thanks for the idea. Going to have to talk to my local Raleigh dealer (they're very well versed in vintage, the shops been around for a century), see what they can tell me about the model, and whether or not it was sold in the States.

“No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

H.L. Mencken, (1926)
