Raleigh 'Team' color fans:

I have unearthed a Raleigh frame brochure showing 3 color schemes. I've scanned the frame photo & specs into a 2.3 megabyte TIF file if anyone's interested.

The colors are listed as Standard:Team colors(Team decals), and Optional: Midnight Blue(white Raleigh decals), Gold (black Raleigh decals).

Also noted: "Road framesets built entirely of Reynolds 531 or 753 butted tubing are fitted with Edco headsets..." and "Framesets will accept a 27mm seat post".

There is no notation of the printing date anywhere on the brochure but I'd say between '76 and '78 judging by the content. I most likely received it after writing to Reynolds for replacement 531 transfers for my Zeus in late '78 (which transfers they were kind enough to supply for free, by the way).
