mid-80s Raleigh USA Gran Prix with 531 tubing???

like new condition, was not ridden much at all
Celeste color
54-56cm size
mix components of Shimano "Gold arrow" and "600"
531 tubing...

any idea of the bike and its value? how many 531 USA Raleigh out there?

P.S. USA Raleigh seems to be very confusing. I have seen "Team" with Raleigh 555 tubing with lower ends components for pretty decent price...

I haven't seen many people complaining about 531 tubing and 600 components. How much are they asking & can you get a crank side pic?

If memory serves me right Raleigh USA only made bikes with Reynolds labled 531 tubing for 1 year.

It should look like this Compettion:

The 'Team USA' is a low-mid level model that used the same graphics as the English made Team Pro frame sets
