Based on the presence ofa light bracket and boss on the right fork blade, it is almost certainly a UK model. I also strongly suspect that it is a frankenbike. SunTour Cyclone derailleurs did not debut until 1975 and by this time, most models of this level also had cotterless cranksets. This was the case in the USA, when Raleigh spec'd Cyclone on the Grand Prix, starting in 1977. Raleigh's serial number format is well known, so I suggest a starting point of determining the year from the serial number. After that, we may be able to determine which UK models had the light bracket boss.

Pump pegs and a light bracket mount on right side of Bike?l It's probably a U.K. model. From the cottered crank set, the safety levers and the stamped drop outs that require a derailleur hanger, this is an entry level model. The derailleurs were upgraded from something else, probably from Simplex or Huret. Looks to be a Seventies or early Eighties model or so.

Try looking at this serial number guide and this serial number guide.

It looks like you're missing some digits from your serial number.

Even in it's current rough shape the nicer components the and fenders are worth $100 so I would say $125-150 for the whole bike. As for the model it looks to have started out as a late 60's European market Super Grand Prix.

Judging by the rear axle (the wheel is held on by nuts, rather than quick release) I'd say it's a Record. The cottered steel crank is consistent with that. The date would be 1967 - 1976 or so. The derailleurs and shifters are probably not original, but the brakes probably are.

I'd need to see the lugs and seat stay treatment to be sure it's not a Grand Prix (if it's a Grand Prix, the rear wheel is not original).
