First year for Super Course 12 Speed?

Picked up a UK built Super Course 12 Speed. Serial number WD0004540. Would it be a 1980? It's speced out just like a 1978, Gold paint 531 butted main tubes and Suntour forged drop-outs. Same parts except for sidepull brakes and the extra cog. Never seen a UK built one of these, it looks more like the early-mid 80's Japanese one.

In the 1980 Raleigh catalog for the USA market, the Super Course pretty much matches those specs. Color is "copper," butted 531 main tubes, SunTour ends, Weinmann 500 sidepull brakes, SR crank, 6-speed freewheel, Weinmann 700c concave rims and SunTour hubs, SunTour VX mechs and bar-end shifters.

I have a 1980 Super Course 12 in very near original condition. I have never been able to locate the 1980 Raleigh Catalog. Where did you find you'd?

Thanks.....I did actually locate that catalog and the copyright is 1980. The Head Badge web sign shows that catalog as a 1981. I have even heard some talk that Raleigh never made a specific 1980 catalog. I believe that was about the time it was relocating it factory to Tiawan. Many thanks again for replying.
