this Raleigh bicycle has nothing to do with Raleigh of England

it is something termed a Technium and was produced by/for Raleigh USA (Huffman owned) at a facility near Tacoma Washington

dates from the early 1980's - roughly forty year ago

loads of information on the Technium products online

just search under that name and you will find the full development story

...you can just flip those 'bars round to the way they were originally of course.
The grips are a bit of an acquired taste though!

First thing i did lol. Of course i didn’t realize he drilled holes through The bars to run the brake cables through them so he could put those stupid grips on so I cut the grips off and of course the brake cables got ruined taking them out so i picked up a cheap cable replace kit from walmart I’ve got one brake working OK the other one is not cooperating. I ordered some new tape

Looks better already.
Personally I would slightly shorten those brake cable outers to tidy up the cockpit area, they look a little too long.
That seatpost looks like it's sticking out of the frame possibly beyond its safe usage point?
The 'technium' frames are an interesting construction concept, I've never seen one before.

yeah I noticed that too it’s my understanding that the guy was very tall and that’s why he put the handlebars like that I’m not sure why he did it on the takara though because the Takara is a super tall bike that was the other one that I picked up in the deal and yes I do plan to shorten the cables and lower seat.
