HI Roger & welcome.
IIRC the Record Sprint was out around the mid 80s, but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be along soon to give more info :laugh:

Hi Roger, I'd say slightly earlier than that, early 80s. Chap up the road has one, black with gold decals?
Rode nicely IIRC.

thanks for all the info chaps and guess it is early 80s then I will keep it as it does ride well I have a new Trek but there is something about these older bikes they seem to ride so well.
Thank you all . . . . Roger

That'll be the 'steel is real' coming through.
They are nice bikes, those. Had one once, wish I hadn't got rid...

Hello Roger and Welcome to the CC forums. :sad:

I had a Raliegh Europa and always wanted a 501 Record in the 80's - it looked a bit less "boy racerish." B)

Hi Doctor I can undertstand you regretting getting rid of your bike as they are getting harder to find now, I have another 2 Raleigh racers and I will put their details on here soon to see if anyone can give me some info on them they are both in excellent condition too . . . . Roger
