Raleigh RacingUSA Competition

Hey guys I picked this Raleigh at a swap meet and was curious of its value either in parts or whole. I don't have any experience with carbon fiber wheels and this is my first Raleigh. Serial number is 4A5R0157. Here is a link to my flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/3648890...7625807005547/

Also this bike came with a WTB "test ride" saddle on it and I was wondering what I should do about that. Can I somehow get in trouble for having it?

Seriously, thats a $150-200 bike with $400 wheels.

And no, the seat wont get you in trouble. Its just a marketing thing.
