Its time to pass on this perennial forum favourite.
I've had it for seven years or so now, and have used it for light touring, child carrying, supermarket running and very occasionally, commuting.
The only changes since I bought it from @Bad_Matt are a honey brown charge spoon saddle and bar tape put on and a new Shimano rear mech. The original Raleigh one tangled with the rear wheel and came off the worse for it. The same incident led to some scuffing on the bar tape. It rides beautifully, is totally dependable and would make a great conversion if you felt so inclined.
I'm looking for what I paid for it, £160 with a 10% forum donation included in the price.
I always aspired to one of these when I was a kid in the cycling club. My first CTC tourer was a woeful rip off of this called a Raleigh Magnum! No wonder I had to get fit.
Top sale, classic bike, the new owner will love it.

Excellent bike! Very smooth.
If I had the space and money I would buy it back.
Is Bad_Matt back on the forum!
Good luck with the sale
Easter Bump and Price Drop
Oh yes, I have a triple crankset and mech for this which I can chuck in if you want to give it some seriously low end gearing.
Bump and price drop £140.
Come on, roll up roll up!
Dibs yes please, pmd.
Oh dear, was checking another bike and did not check the seat tube on this. Appologies, am too short. Undibbed.
I've just remeasured the seat tube. It's 58cm c-t.
