Reviving an old thread--I just finished up this Raleigh Royale and was able to keep it fairly original. The brakes are the "88s" and the derailleurs are original Simplex. Only changed out the cables, housing and handlebar wrap--for the rest original. It has the fork-mounted headlight bracket. The seat was a Japanese spring saddle like an old Brooks saddle but may not have been original to the bike. Nice solid bike, and the derailleurs and levers work quite nicely, as do the center-pull brakes. If it is indeed 69-70, then it pre-dates the two Sports models I had. This one certainly was in better shape and had obviously been stored well.
