Bought used for $400 a few years back, put zero work into it and rode it a bit. It’s fun. Quick release up front. Flip flop in the back so I spose you can run it SS or fixed (I never switched it from SS and can’t tell ya anything about it). Has a “no brakes” sticker which is a lie because it definitely has a front brake. I’m 5’6″ and this bike is a smidge too tall for me, not sure of its actual dimensions.
This bike is pretty small. I think it’s ~1973, but not entirely sure. It was a project bike that never fit me. Found the frame in the trash and got new wheels built up for it with a new internal 3-speed hub. New brakes, new cork grips, new saddle. It’s a charming piece of history and just doesn’t fit me well enough to keep it.

Sigh, I hate to sell these little sweeties, but sometimes you gotta make some room in the stable.
How heavy is the Raleigh? My dad still has his mid-60s Raleigh 10 speed with the same saddle as yours, except it was black. That was a real pain in the butt (literally) to ride on. His bike weighs approximately 900 lbs.
The pista looks like it had an added on brake. Sorta an elegant solution.
