Need help identifying Raleigh bike

Hello,

I'm new to this forum and bikes in general. I just bought a bike at an auction, but have trouble identifying the bike. I was wondering if anyone here would know. Here is a picture of the logo and it is a road bike although the auction has it as a tour bike.




If I'm not posing at the right place, please tell me.

Thanks for the help in advanced

Thats not much of a picture but it may be the Raleigh 101.

If it is, you probably paid too much.

The decal you showed is on the top tube at the front of the bike, both sides.

Does this match the other decals on the frame ??

Yeah I think it's the same. Is this a really bad bike? I didn't pay too much for it, but from hearing you, it sounds like it's worthless or something.

Step 1: Locate the bicycle's serial number (underside of BB, or top of seat tube facing rearward)
Step 2: Identify the year of manufacture



Step 3: Search the appropriate Raleigh catalog for your model (use paint color and parts for a positive ID)
