    1980's Raleigh Sports 3PD Lady(Canadian)

    I recently picked up a Raleigh Sports 3 Speed. It has a Shimano Internal hub, spring seat, and cruiser style(Fenders+chainguard). The components aren't collectible it seems, but the "coffee" color seems to be kind of rare.

    Here's a picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/abracadabra-/3815756464/

    In superb frame condition, tires have lost their whitewall color, little if any scratches, ready to ride off the drive--How much is it worth?


    Thanks everyone. I don't know how I'd live without the bike forums
    First God made the fixie, then he made the freewheel because he was tired of pedaling.

    Value depends on location, just like real estate.... In my area, I'd guess you could get $100 pretty easily, $150 with patience.

    Thanks, you confirmed my estimate. The latter is where it's set right now.

    Could you elaborate more on location and value? You mean there's somewhere I can get $250 for it?

    No way you'll ever get 250. It's Taiwan made, that eliminates hard core fans of the brand. Functionally it's not a bad bike . 150 is optimistic. It would actually make an OK commuter or all around rider. It wasn't high priced when new, little collecter value. You could josh the client to extract a higher price.
