Raleigh Supercourse MK II find

I've been patiently looking for a bike to build up for my daughter and I finally found a raleigh supercourse mark II from I believe the 1970s. The paint job looks great and the parts have been very tastefully upgraded by the PO: dura ace long reach sidepulls and levers, TA triple crank, campy nuovo record hubs laced onto campy rims, campy headset, campy NR seatpost, avocet touring II saddle (one of my favorite saddles), cinelli bar and stem, TA triple crank, shimano crane derailleurs, and shimano 600 downtube shifters. The parts are very clean and show little wear. The paint still looks very sharp and there are very few scratches. Really a first rate set of components and a very nice frame. Too bad it's not my size, :

I don't recognize any of the parts, but that was my second road bike ever back in the 70's. I felt very lucky to have it.

Very pretty frame btw, nice score, and the parts changes all look like mostly lighter improvements, save for maybe the shifters (would have been the very nice Jubilee iir).

Oracle says you did great Bikemig. Hope your daughter likes red! Enjoy riding together too. I think it is a 1978, far older than your daughter.
