That photo is useless. Blown up it is still grainy. Also, need to see the components up close. Should be a name right on the top tube.

I Did The "Hokey-Pokey", It Turned Me Around

Forget the link's title (above), and use this one, instead: "Two-Step Raleigh Identification Procedure"

Perhaps I should have just reposted the contend of the linked post, rather than only the link... or, changed the title. The danger of shortcuts. My point was the two-step identification process. Thanks for the gentle pointer.

Sorry the bike's model is the Raleigh Technium 460. Asking price was $250.
