    Value of a 1977 Raleigh Grand Prix?

    Hi I recently found a 1977 Raleigh Grand Prix in garage of my parents garage after being nagged into doing some spring cleaning for them. They've decided to give it to me and I already have enough bikes, so I'm planning to sell it on Craigslist. How much would be a reasonable price to let this go for?

    If I remember correctly my father bought it for a failed diet plan so it was barely ridden.

    It is still completely stock from the catalog and in used but new condition; aside from a few minuscule scratches and some chipping paint off the logo's due to age (color is silver & a baby blue). No rust on anything or pits in the chrome at the fork and back end.

    The original gum walled tires have survived quite surprisingly too in the dark garage and haven't cracked.

    I cleaned it up and re lubed the components and it works flawlessly.

    Depends where you are and when you are going to list it. 20-30 Hi Tensile steel, steel rims, but cotterless crank... I sold a '74 Record (similar bike but with cottered cranks and in average frame patina condition) for $75 here in January, because I needed the space. I think that you can probably list it for $150-200 and wait a bit.

    still stuck in the '80s; '70s were good as well, but i severely dislike tubulars.

    $120 max around here, even during riding season. Steel rims, high ten steel frame = bottom end entry bike. Needs to have alloy rims to break that price level.

    It'll be worth almost double if you list with "would make a good fixie" in the ad.
    Biking isn't a sport because anybody can do it. I can bike, you can bike. For goodness sakes, my mother can bike! You don't see her on the cover of Sports Illustrated, do you?
