after some research it seems this bike originally was built in england and eventually outsourced to Japan in the 60's. You happen to have the outsourced version.

It looks like a standard mid range Raliegh 3 speed that was built in the 1960s with dozens of different head badges on them. 3 speed classic English bike. Roger

I have one

I have the same bike, except a girls' version. It has the seat and fenders and is in pretty nice condition, but the chainguard is not original - someone has scabbed an old one on there with incorrect brackets. Can you tell if yours ever had a chainguard?

Doesn't have the distinctive Raleigh fork.

Old thread, I know, but for the sake of posterity: They were designed by Scheuer and built in Germany until about 1960, then moved to Japan. They had Shimano 333 rear hubs, a pretty sure sign they had nothing to do with Raleigh. Here's another thread about them: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/the-londoner.25924/
