Memory test - Raleigh racer from the 80s

Hi all

This is by no means a classic bike but I was trying to remember the name of my first drop bar bike from about the mid 1980s maybe. Silver Raleigh with a triple and maybe 5 or 6 on the back. I think it had a kind of futuristic sounding name and I swear a month ago I could have named it but I canít put my finger on it now and itís driving me mad.

Anyone know what Iím talking about? Not Apollo Iím sure but something along those lines?

Those are highly collectible these days. They tend to be listed on eBay for over $100 for bottle and cage sets in good condition.

I am slightly regretting binning / recycling the whole thing when I cleared out my parentís shed years back. It was in a lamentable state. I tragically went into cycling hibernation between the ages of 18 and 40.
