Check for cracks and such near the bottom bracket. The last thing you want is to be crusing at 30+ and meet the pavement (and maybe your maker). I don't mean to be pessimistic on your awesome find, but yeah, me too -> I can't believe someone threw it out! Best of luck.

The welds on that Raleigh look like the ones on my Trek. Real solid. It would be easy to spot cracks starting (if they ever do). Good score Turbo.

The best way to spot unseen fractures on an aluminum frame is to look for missing paint or small cracks in the paint.
