I don't know what model this bike is, but I don't think it is an RRA. The RRA did not have any chrome on the frame itself, and it had forged dropouts. Raleigh seemed to have some different models available across the pond. This may be one of those that migrated over here. Looks like a cross between a Competition and a Super Course. The current bid is still $5--should be worth at least twice that ;-)
