1984-5 Raleigh Triumph Gran Course
Hi, folks. I'm going to be looking at the bike listed here today. I've read that the Gran Course was available as a European market frameset only. There's limited info out there, but the frame is in this catalog: http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalog...4/ral84_15.jpg. This particular one appears to have been built up mostly with Suntour Sprint components.
The seller is firm at $285, and I'll be driving a ways to look at it. So I'd like opinions - am I going to be overpaying for this? My intent isn't to flip it, but I do like to know that if at some point I need to sell it I have a reasonable chance of getting back what I put into it.
I'd be especially interested in the opinions of @nlerner, @zaphodbeeblebrox, @RobE30, or anyone else who's had one of these or knows Worksop-built Raleighs really well (@noglider, @auchencrow, or @wrk101?). Apologies if I've overlooked anyone obvious, but I don't want to call out everyone on the forum in one post.
So any thoughts?
