Women's Raleigh Marathon 502

Hi guys. This is a garage sale find and I honestly don't know anything about bikes. I do know that Raleigh is a good name and this thing is in good shape, so I couldn't pass it up. Can anyone give me an idea what it's worth? I appreciate any input. Thanks!

I paid about $80 for one, in better condition than the one photographed and with a better saddle.

if you live in the San Francisco bay area, Mixte bikes are IN. so if its cleaned up and a less ugly saddle (lets face it.. its image) then id say $150+. but you cant get a decent coffee for less than 5 dollars about here so...

Comprehensively overhauled with new consumables, you should do much better in SF than $150, more like $250, because I sold one the one below for just under that 10 months ago (no basket), and resold it last week for $200.

I'm in Rochester, NY. Bikes are a bit less in demand, I'm sure. I only paid $20 so it's a win, but don't want to get ripped off either lol.
