Raleigh Chopper Mark III?

Hi, I don't know if C&V is the best place, but I feel it might be for this question.

Is there much of a value to a MarkIII?

Sturmey Achery 3 Speed
Twist shift

Looks all there, but dirty and rusty chrome.

Fair question, but better suited for the appraisal sub-forum - which is where this is getting moved to.

Yours is the same as the picture? (Yours IS the picture?)
IMHO the whole repro muscle bike fad a couple years folded pretty badly. Local CL is flooded with repro stingrays (especially those horrible 'Orange County Choppers' ones) for low low prices. Add to that that the Choppers were never that big in America (altho I don't know about Canada), and honestly, you're lucky if you get $100 for a cleaned-up one in decent shape. However! This bike has some neat parts, for your parts bin or to sell for a little $. Apehangers, cleaned up, should be worth $15 or $20 on CL. Alloy stem and seatpost, cheapo 3-piece SS crank...Most of all, however, you have a 3-speed Sturmey laced into a 20". This is desirable for anyone upgrading an old folding bike. The front wheel might possibly of interest to those applications too. Dump the frame.
