Raleigh Capri (year-?)

Hey there, so my bike was just stolen and I am on the hunt for a new bike. I don't have a car so this is my main mode of transportation. I don't need anything too extravagant but I don't want to get a piece of junk. I don't know much about bikes so I am in need of advice.

What do you guys think? I need all of the advice I can get.

Thanks!

Ridiculously high. Capri is a very low-end mid-80s Raleigh USA (when the brand was managed by Huffy), Made-In-Taiwan bike. That would be about a $100 bike around here.

This is a lot more bike for less money: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...185402189.html

...and if you're over 6 feet tall, this one is a steal! http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb...185320580.html

The Capri is an '86. I sold one last spring for $100.
