The bottom crank has just started to creak I think a bearings going. Please tell me this is replaceable.... With the saddle bag she weighs in at 10kg. Not bad at all.
A link to the original Catalogue page, I can still smell the ink. Sorry if that’s a rule break.

Ilkeston built track, 753, Team Weinmann livery.
I have the Raleigh type 8906 Club 531 frame that is in the catalogue.
Your frame is different to mine and the catalogue in several ways.
1. sloping crown on the front fork, rather than lugged
2. frame decals are different, on down tube and fork.
3. no Raleigh name on top of seat stays
4. no model name
5. Raleigh badge is later
I thinks yours is a later year and sold as a complete bike rather than just a frame.
If you look closely at the Shimano components you will see two letters.
This is a date stamp from the factory and can help id the date of manufacture.
Also look for a frame number. This can reveal where it was built, year and month.
Google for both of these code breaking lists.
It is a very nice bike and will look better with some TLC.
