Raleigh Record

I am looking for a road bike and found this Raleigh Record 10 speed road bike 1980's

$250 seems a bit expensive but I have no clue and wondering what you all think? Also, is this a good bike overall or do you have any other recommendations for a road bike of this style in the $250-$300 or lower range?

Too high, IMO. Records are the bottom of the Raleigh line and that was not among the better years of Records. Chicago is a pricey market, but I still think that's overpriced.

There are a multitude of good brands of vintage steel bikes so there are too many to name, but if you page through this forum you can learn a lot from other queries.

Generally speaking, stem shifters are indicative of lower end models so I'd look for bikes with downtube shifters.

There are better deals to be had:

Here's something that's a little higher quality than the Raleigh you posted, with a sweet fade paint job and a much more reasonable price:

High quality and lightweight for an 80's road bike. Don't know the exact size but it should fit someone 5'7 or taller. Runs smooth and brakes well only needs new shifter cables. Asking $120 obo need to sell asap
