This older Raleigh is really a beautiful bike. I wish the paint was in a little better condition. Here is a link to what looks like the original ad for the bike. Here’s another link. Looks to be a 1974 – 1976 Super Course MK 2.
It had a machined aluminum crankset.
I spent a great deal of time taking bearing areas apart and the above was the usual result. Good shape, but in really gummy grease. Cleaned and repacked all of it.
Not sure if you can see any difference. The silver stays and fork blades polished out well. I ended up re-lacing part of the rear wheel. Surprisingly it trued up nicely.
Hoping for another good weekend project next week!
