It looks pretty.
The price ($375) is probably reasonable for buying or selling, perhaps a little on the low side.

If it is your bike, add the additional photos into your ad. Also, list the size and a quick major component list. Tubing type?

Also, have you repacked all the bearings? Tire type, size, and condition?

Team Pro Replica. Some of which were pretty nice, some of which were bottom end. My recollection is the ones with the blue fork and chainstay were more toward the latter. Price is way high IMO unless it's a 531 frame. In which case the price is likely still a tad high depending on components.

I saw that after seeing your postings and was a bit amused since the usual tactic is to lower the price of an item if it's not moving. Now it makes sense.

We just recently opined on one of these in another thread. Actually a lower-end bike that does a nice job looking the higher-end role. I'd normally put one of these at $150-$175. OP's looks very clean and ready to ride so $200-$225 IMO.

Raleigh was doing some interesting things with mediocre bikes in the mid-80's. They would take entry level stuff & slap their name all over it. Raleigh stickers on wheels, frames, Raleigh Olympic stickers, Raleigh, Raleigh, Raleigh. Like they had a "designer brand label" fetish going. I guess some people buy into that & think they have something special. But, it was really just a passing fad.

I picked up a really nice one w/step through girls frame a few years ago for $140. It's actually a pretty decent bike. No way it's worth more than about $225 tops. Somebody told me once that Raleigh was selling bikes at Target back then. But, I really can't believe that. Wasn't Raleigh always a "bike - store" brand?

Raleigh was definitely a bike store brand during the Raleigh USA years. We sold a lot of those bikes.

I'd previously worked in a shop in the mid-'70s that sold the English Raleighs. The Asian-sourced '80s Raleighs were quite a step up in quality control and finishing. Beautiful paint jobs, too.
