Raleigh marathon frame 68cm
I have a lead on a 68cm marathon frame, with a few extras, probably early 80's? The frame's lugged, in good shape but not perfect. I'm tall, I ride a 67 AHH, so I always keep a eye out for big frames since they aren't too plentiful. I'm looking to build up a commuter/do-everything bike to replace my too small-too long tt MTB I'm currently riding to work, errand, pulling kids, etc.
The guy's asking $150 for it which seems way high to me. However, like I said, these big frames don't come along too often so I may be willing to pay a bit more than it's worth. I'm considering offering $100.
Based on what little I've been able to dig up on the marathon, it appears to have more of a touring geometry which seems like it'll suit my needs. But what about the price? I'm fairly new to the vintage bike scene so I'd appreciate any thoughts (about the frame and the price) from you folks who have more experience with older bikes. Thanks.
