Raleigh Team banana bike

I am buying a Raleigh Team banana bike. the brief description I have is 58ch bottom bracket to centre top tube, Raleighs patented '18-23 Controlled Carbon Steel Tubing', with the signature of the then team manager on the downtube, Paul Sherman. Wheels have Maillard hubs, brakes Weinmann, with both the front and rear mechs being Sachs Huret.
Wher is teh best place to buy spares to refurbish the bike and does anyone have the full specs of the bike or know where I can find more about it.

Maybe you should ask in the classic and vintage forum.

Not trying to be funny in the least, it sounds like a low-end 'vintage' bike.
