Raleigh Record Ace -- what's it worth?

I was cleaning out my tool shed and I decided to clean up and sell an old bike I bought for commuting. It's a Raleigh Record Ace with original groupo (Raleigh crank set, Raleigh Weinemann brakes, Suntour gear set), but the wheels had been swapped out for cheapos, and there is a funky mountain bike style handle bar and the seat is some old Avocet brown thing. It has lots of original stickers, one which says "Raleigh winners Tour de France 1977" and it has the "Raleigh Nottingham, England" metal insignia on the neck. I posted it on craigslist.org for $75, and within a few hours I had ten responses. What gives? I can't seem to find any listings on ebay that would indicate this bike is worth more. Am I selling some sought after treasure for which I should be asking twice as much? Please, any advice welcome.
thanks,
Samwheels
