WGB, it was built in 1990. The first and fifth digit are indicative.

Week ago I bought a 1992 Raleigh Technium Competition with Reynolds 531 tubing. It's in good condition, the former owner was a triathlonist and kept good care of it. I've stripped it down and I've almost cleaned all the parts. Frame has some rust spots that I have to get rid of and touch with paint.
Parts:
Shimano 600 headset
Mavic rims with Campagnolo hubs and Campagnolo 9 speed cassette
Campagnolo Super Record crankset, 52/43 rings and Bianchi etched to the largest ring
Campagnolo Athena brakes, Shimano 105 levers
Campagnolo Syncro II C-Record shifters
Shimano Dura-ace 7402 derailleur
Campagnolo front derailleur
Itm Bianchi stem
Ofmega Master pedals
Selle Italia Turbo Special saddle
Not a bad purchase with 200Ä...

Finally got all the parts and assembled the bike!

You can upload photos prior to 10 ten posts. They won't attach to a post but they will upload to a gallery album under your user name, where members can view them. In fact, you have uploaded one photo but it definitely isn't a Technium. Photo assist..

I didn't know pics upload to my album! Thx for the info! I'll attach some to my original post
Haha yes thats definitely not the one. I was asking a while ago if anyone knew what the Rialto was because I couldn't find any info in them.

What size tires are those? I put 700x25 on my Tri-Lite and I donít think fenders would ever fit.

That yellow Rialto was on sale over a year ago. I just asked on the forum if someone knows anything about Rialtos if it would be a good buy. Thats not my bike

Great score! It looks to the 1990 model, as I beileve the 1991 rec'd a triple crankset. I never could get over the fact that the Technium Supercourse was lower in the product line than the Technium Grand Prix. It just seemed unnatural, having sold Raleigh during the early 1970s bicycle boom, when the order of these two models was reversed. Regardless, enjoy your new acquisition.

I don't remember Technium Supercourse and Grand Prix models. Are you thinking of the Raleigh USA steel lugged bikes? (I may be misremembering, or you may be talking about Raleigh Technium models that showed up after I stopped working for a Raleigh dealership.)

If you are talking about the Raleigh USA steel bikes, yes, the reversed hierarchy was strange. Reynolds 531 for the Grand Prix, "Raleigh 555" tubing for the Supercourse, where the earlier Grand Prix had had 2030 steel and the Supercourse had had 531 main tubes.

No, I meant Techium Supercourse and Technium Grand Prix. The bicycle in post #185 owned by @top506 is a Technium Supercourse. Also, the Supecourse was still higher than above the Grand Prix on those mid 1980s, brazed steel, Raleigh USA models. I'm not sure exactly when the hierachy changed but it was sometime during 1987-1990.

Are there any "Second Generation" Technium catalogs on the web?
I've got examples in 531, 753 and Prestige but have never found info all in one place.
I get the feeling that the guys in Washington knew they were doomed, but were having fun and wanted to show what they could do.

The Team with Reynolds 753 was only made during 1990-1992 and was only offered with full Dura-Ace. Yours looks like it has been complete rebuilt, including the fork.

Do you happen to know what the seatpost diameter is? I just bought a 25.4 for mine since it didn't come with a seat post but I'm wondering if it might actually be smaller.
