Raleigh Record Ace

Hello all, I just joint the forums. I am from Eugene, OR. So I just picked up a Raleigh Record Ace and I was wondering if someone would help me to determine the year it was made?! It has a sticker that says
"1977 Tour De France 1978
Team Winners
Team
T.I.-Raleigh
World Road Champion
1978"
Any ideas?

Don't mention it. I've always wanted a bike that was the same age as me. What would be even cooler is if it was born the same month as you too.

It was close but not the same, three months apart. But we were both made in Europe. Thats kind of neat. The only thing left to do is to see who will last longer... I wonder when people will refer to me as vintage? I bet that will be sooner then later
