The mystery bike was a 1971 competition :<blah>

This was a 1971 raleigh international :<blah>

Notice that a Raleigh International fork has a heavy vagner crown with the triangular sides and a cutout window, with a gold inset, in the shape "D-". The international crown has "V" epaulets.

The raleigh competition had a "|C" type of fork that is way lighter than a raleigh international fork, with no epaulets, and which tapers to a pencil-thin tube. Both bikes have nervex lugs, nervex bottom bracket, campagnolo ends, and wrap-over seatstays.
