    What Raleigh Model is this?



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    This would be my first road bike. Guy says it's a 410 but I can't seem to find anything on the internet. Can anyone help me out? He's selling it for about 80, he said all it needs is an extra tube and I would need to grease the chain. Other than that it was never used. This would be my first road bike so I'm not sure I care to invest too much into one just yet. Let me know what you guys think, thanks.

    I'd guess it is a Capri with Raleigh 410 tubing.
    Looking for Quick release for a BR-6208 Cotter pin press

    You think it's worth the price the price?

    Try talking him down to 50, or have him replace the tube, etc. to get it in rideable shape. 80 isn't a terrible price, but it's a low end bike that there are plenty of out there. All nice and clean it should be worth maybe 100.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    At $80, you really can't get much, and this bike fits that description. Be prepared to spend some $$ getting it road ready. If you do the work yourself, that should not cost much. If you pay a shop to do the work, then you rapidly risk being upside down on this bike.

    I can probably take care of the stuff stated. Thanks for the input.
