Raleigh record?

I have recently been given a raleigh road bike frame that has a regular round section cross bar but oval cross sections to the two down tubes. Frame No is WM400133. Can anybody out their tell me what model of raleigh this is, what tube type it is likely to be and any original specifications. When i contacted Raleigh they offered very unspecific details about the bike and made no reference to the oval frame members. Any info really appreciated, thanks, OliverK

Your post caught my eye as I had a Raleigh Record as a kid, probably a 1970 model, or thereabouts. It was my first real non-kid bike and I put thousands of miles on it. Wish I still had it but it was stolen from my parents house years ago.
