Info on this bike? Raleigh Lupes Record

Hey
i just bought a raleigh lupes record today. Im wondering when it was built, i was thinking early 1980s. I couldn't find a link/thread about the bike. If anyone has info on the bike that would be awesome

Raleigh frame, fork, drops, Crankset, stem, rims and tires.
Suntour derailleur, shifters
Dia Compe levers

Thanks!

Hello. You'll get a much better response if you have photos of the bike from the drive side (side with the chain and sprockets) and close ups of components and frame details.

I have a hunch that the Raleigh is a "Super Record" and not a "Lupes Record".

I found this bike and it is exactly the same as mine, except mine says lupes instead of super. Probably because it is made in Japan.
So I found my bike YAY.
Do you guys think i should keep the paint (its chipped on the top tube), or repaint it.

We'd need to some pics of your bike. But, most vintage bikes do not need repainting.
