1980's Raleigh Skyway prototype? Need info on this if anyone can help

There is a bike on Craigslist locally here, and this is the description. Can anyone tell me more about it?

This is a 1980s Raleigh Skyway replica prototype (very rare). This bike was not originally badged Skyway, but is a teardrop frame throughout, including seat pole & clamp. It includes Lee Chi brakes front & rear (original) and sweet aluminum mags. Please call Rob at 262-893-4478. Cash only. Thanks for looking!

Huffy Pro Lightning maybe?  From my recollection, they had the tear drop seat post.

hmm I knew it wasn't a real T/A, but was wondering what the deal was with it. Besides, who would throw LeeChi brakes on a T/A?

Brake bridge isn't the same as the Huffy. All I know is that someone spent WAY too much time trying to make it into a T/A. Cool bike on its own...sure, not quite into it myself.
