Here's my Raleigh Royal, sometimes equipped with a trailer, soon to have a front rack. It's my hack bike - I ride it everywhere, for grocery getting, sometimes for long rides, but never yet for a tour. When I do eventually get to tour at all, it'll be on my tandem.

It's all 531, with Weinmann centrepull brakes, Suntour Cyclone derailleurs with power shifters, a set of Shimano cranks, the model of which I forget, with which I replaced the original compact double. I had stripped the old crank changing pedals, but I found the gearing too low anyway, with a 38 small ring. This gives me 42/52, which suits much more. Nasty but comfortable old suede saddle, to be replaced by a Brooks when I eventually stop beginning new projects and start tidying up what I've got, and at the moment, mismatched wheels, because the rear you see here keeps flatting.
