My money would be on mid-late 80's, Weinmann centre-pull mid 80's, DC cantis late. May have things confused with the Royal.

May be of interest: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15639

The website below has lnks to jpegs of a few of the 1980s Raleigh catalogues. That model was listed for example in the 84 catalogue in the following links:

My wife bought a ladies frame version like that in 1989. I suspect it may have been old stock as was on sale and had 27" wheels & 126mm rear spacing. At the same time I bought a Royal with 700c wheels, 130mm spacing & vertical drop-outs.
