1970's Raleigh Team record

https://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...AdIdZ421969422

found a bike on the local classifieds listed as a Raleigh Team record. I was reading from this post:

https://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in.../t-352111.html

https://www.mytenspeeds.com/My_TenSpe...troduction.htm

so is this bike considered as the lower end? what will be the material of the frame (is it raynold531? im sure its not "all aluminum" as advertised)? and the component (derailleurs/ shifter/brakes) would be?

Seller asking for $80, but i am looking for a mid-range level bike instead a cheap bike. any info or suggestions will be much appreciated!

The Raleigh Team Record was manufactured to capitalize on Joop Zoetemelk's 1980 victory in the Tour de France. It is a bottom of the line Raleigh Record dressed in Ti-Raleigh colors. The frame is hi-tensile steel with stamped dropouts. It's worth marginally more than your standard Record of the era.

Of all the vintage road bicycles that I have owned, the Ream Raleigh Record pictured below was the worst made! The quality of construction was terrible...



You can see a bit more of what I am talking about here.

I would agree these where bottom end bikes. Painted to look like a nicer bike.
