I've got a thing for 1970's Raleighs, mostly due to my dad working in a Raleigh shop in San Francisco back then. He was a "Raleigh man" through and through. And the design of the International seems unique among production lightweights of that time, a more relaxed, all-rounder type frame with racing parts.

I have read, and the archives confirm, that the later internationals were steeper and shorter. When did this change take place? Or, if one were looking for a true, "long-n-low" International with chromed Nervex Pro lugs, what would be the last year that they were made that way?
