The bike is on CL near me, asking $250. Carlton serial number K6634, no model names or frame decals. Chrome lugs that appear to have been painted over. The size is approx 55 cm, Suntour Vx FD and RD, Shimano hubs, alloy wheels, Dura-Ace brakes, Sugino crank. Rideable and in good condition. What do you guys think this is worth?
Looks like the Carlton version of a Raleigh International, but I don't know enough about either to say for certain. The components are not original - those are Huret shifters, probably would've had Weinmann centerpulls instead of Dura-ace. If a closer inspection checks out, it'd be worth $250 in my opinion. If it was 3 cm taller I'd be asking you to get it for me.
I think you are right about offers. I talked to him yesterday, he is a chef in Hendersonville and rode it to work. I think he got it from a neighbor as estate sale or give-away even. He is a mountain biker not a road biker. I haven't seen it yet but he has sent me some pictures.
