Help me with this Raleigh.

Found this for 30 bucks at a thrift shop this weekend. It's only open one day a week and was closing when I spotted the bike. Sorry for the one crappy picture but it's all I could get. It has a Raleigh emblem on the front, and a stamp on the seat tube that says made in Holland.

Hard to say. I'm thinking its a Grand Prix, which was near the bottom end in the 70's.

Yup, early 70s Grand Prix is my guess.

Looks tall, like 60cm or more. You tall?
These are gaspipe but pretty well made gaspipe. I'd almost say that they were better made than the Nottingham Raleighs. I like the earlier Raleighs with the slacker angles, though. Check the rear hub for threading on the left side. A lot of GPs have flip flop hubs.
I have spoken.
