I own a 1985 Raleigh Racing USA Prestige. I only rode it a few times before I had multiple knee surgurgies and its been in storage in storage ever since. Is there a demand for these older bikes out there? I know the technology is changed alot and truthfully I have been out of the loop on cycling over the past 20 years! I am comtemplating on selling it or just keeping and riding it or saving it for my kids. Its pratically like new except some of the rubber has rotted. It even has the original tires on it! I would appreciate some advice from some of you experienced riders out there! I am 43 now, slightly out of shape. Will this frame and wheels hold me up? Or will I find myself sliding down the road leaving DNA everywhere? Whats the value of this bike, or how can I determine it?
Thank you in advance!
