Help with identification, plz finally got some pics

Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum, and to cycling for that matter, so any assistance will be greatly appreciated. I have recently purchaced a Raleigh/Carlton "Corsa Strada" SN #WN278G. I've been scouring the internet for information on this specific bike. I think it's a Carlton Workshop bike from 1972, if I understand the numbering system, but thats as far as I've gotten. Looks almost identical to the Carlton professional from '71. I'm including pics of the components. I realize that some, most, or all may have been replaced, at some point. I'll have to take some more pics, files are way to big to post. Anyway, Suntour derailleurs "sprint" up front,"V-GTluxe" on the rear, Huret shifters on the downtube, wienmann 27" rims, wienmann rear brakes GB's up front, looks like the notorious AVA death stem, and campagnolo quick release on the axles. It's lagoon blue, with carlton logo decals, and Raleigh Nottingham on the head badge, and looks like the original brooks saddle, and red white and blue bar tape. Sorry to go so long but no pics require details. I'll post as soon as i can take some lower res pics.

thanks for any help
