Raleigh Teton

It is a mountain bike, 1985, but looks nice.
What price should I ask for it?

$300 - $340. That chrome is pretty sweet.

But that kind of money is usually reserved for touring or race bikes of that vintage. Old rigid MTB's seem to be more interesting to practical city riders who aren't into keeping it stock and are going to chain it to things.

Teton's were on the low end of the Mountain Tour line. It is high tensile steel and weighs in at 35 pounds. Vintage MTB's don't usually bring much more than $150 and those are top of the line mass production ones.

If it fit me, I would keep it because that chrome is sweet and it looks bad@ss.

I read about it it is on the 4th position of 5 from the mountain bikes made by Raleigh.
People are paying more then 200 for a Wal-Mart bike which doesn't last a year. I posted for 170, still there are people out there, who know the quality of Raleigh.

170 is a good price. It's a minty bike, and no one is going up a mountain with it; the difference between Hi-Ten and CrMo shouldn't make too much of a difference to a buyer.
