Wondering if anyone knows anything about this bike.

Hi ,I have a 1965 3 speed Raleigh , rod brakes with a revolving new Lucas bell from Andreou in Nicosia. a used brooks leather saddle in nice condition, full complete chaincase with no parts missing. There is no brake scuffing on the chrome of the drop centre rims. The color is black and the fender is white. The kid who owned it painted the frame with cheap red paint. I put a little furniture paint remover on a small patch of paint and was able to wipe of the red paint and see the original black.I live in Toronto, Canada.
