Here's another vote for Panaracer Pasela tires, or even generic Kenda. Many folks replaced original 27 X 1 1/4 with 1 1/8, which can be a good choice depending on your weight and your road conditions.


I have tan sidewall Pasela 27 X 1 1/8 on a Motobecane Grand Touring and black Pasela 700X35 on a Falcon, both bikes only slightly newer than your Raleigh, and I think those tires bring out the best in bikes of that vintage. And Paselas have a subtle arrow on the sidewall showing direction of rotation.
