Ok, assume it's a Brit. First, if it's any of the options, $100 is a decent price for the frame, front mech, seatpost (American Classic installed backwards), HS, chainset, regardless of whether it's no-name Italian, a Raleigh Pro, or a Holdsworth or whatever, if not-cracked or creased. Second, if it's a Raleigh, shouldn't there be a S/N stamped into the steel someplace?

Other clues: Pinned joints? splined butts? Style of how the chainstay/seatstay/fork blade ends are finished? Drillings/stampings/ventings on the bottom of the BB shell?

But seriously, at that price it's a chance to get a potentially nice frame to ride, which just might be a collectible. Don't you need to make a neo-Clubman or something?

Chuckk - not saying no, but don't Grandis forks have a big G on them? Can you confirm, just to solve the final question on this bad boy...

I emailed photos of the frame and the serial number to the MKM frame registry at https://www.mkm-cycles.co.uk.

They now have the number for their files.

In the reply email I was advised "Nice frame with fastback stays which were an extra £3.00 at the time!"What do we get now for £3.00? £3 converted from 1978 to now is only £16.36 per an online calculator and £16.36 is $27.65 Canadian or $20.74 USD. What do you get for that kind of money these days, a couple of inner tubes?

Would have been nice to have the "Milremo Classic Standard" headset, just because I doubt I'll ever see one up close.
