We can't give a valuation without pictures. We'll esp. need pics of the drive side and any details like frame tubing, components, etc.

Technium's are respectable bikes. I'm not familiar with any made from Reynolds 531. I thought they were all made out of bonded aluminium. From what I've read about them, Raleigh made three levels depending on components. I've got one with nice Sugino crankset but brakes & shifters are entry level. If it's nice & has good wheels & tires I don't see anything wrong with paying around $200 for it.

Shimano tricolor components ID'd for RD, FD, crankset. If the whole bike is setup with same, $200 is FMV. Wheel rims don't show evidence of a lot of use, just a dirty ride with lousy photos.

If it needs nothing and it all works; 200 is fair.

Good components. If it fits, I'd think $200 would be worth it, especially if the brake pads, cables, etc are in good shape.

The Technium process bonds dissimilar metals. The typical combination is alu tubes bonded to cromoly lugs, but they made all sorts of combinations, including Reynolds 531 and 753 main tube bikes.
