    Values of a vintage western flyer and 502 Raleigh (olympian?)

    Im looking at a couple of bikes and thinking of buying one. I wanted to get your opinions on them, since im not really an expert as far as their value.

    The first:

    I think its a Raleigh Olympian. I feel like the asking price is a little much and im hoping to talk them down.

    The second:
    http://savannah.craigslist.org/bik/2364629640.html

    Im about 5' 5' so I think the frame of this one might be too small for me (23in). Im double checking with them to make sure its right cause that seems pretty tiny.

    Both bikes are very likely too big for you. Google frame sizing, 23 inch is medium to large. Western Flyer, little to no value, maybe $25. Raleigh is better, maybe $150.
