So whereas it would be possible to get some random Raleigh frame and put random other parts on it, the Raleigh-branded OEM parts are not available in the US and never were. They came on a Raleigh, and judging by the quality of the crank, they came on a pretty good one. This was a pretty good one. frame quality consistent with the components. So I see no reason to think anything was changed.
My daughter has a 1978 Super Grand Prix with Raleigh branded cranks like the ones pictured but hers are drilled for the trouser guard ring. I thought they looked like SR cranks. Joe joesvintageroadbikes.wordpress
