vintage raleigh record or knock off?

I have had this bike for over a year and even though its entry level standard all steel bike. I love it. I have been having a ton of trouble trying to identfy if it is a real Raleigh, or a re branded all steel bike. There are a couple of things that worry me. Ive been using Sheldon Brown to try to identy my bike but nothing i have seen or read quite matches up. Here are some photo's of key identifiers I have taken off of the bike any help would be grately appreciated!

Wheel hub, has stamped crown in it with a double KK below says C-89

Cheers and welcome to BF. I see you already found the Classic and Vintage forum. If anyone can answer your question, it's them.
