Old Raleigh Capri - any worth?

Found this in the thrift store for $20.

410 Steel frame made in Taiwan. Chainstay says 'Sport Touring Geometry'.
Seems all stock. Tires are trash. Seems quite heavy.

Worth any trouble getting it and flip or keep it?

I would pass, unless you need a bike to ride right now. It is solid basic bike and looks in decent mechanical shape but, after tires, basic tuneup and doing something with the bar tape your close to $125 invested to try and flip for a profit.

I had one I picked up for $75, spent $50 for restoration, then sold it for $125. Not much money available in it for the work it'll take. You might could sell it "as is" for $75.

Of course, another avenue is to strip the parts off and sell them individually...no further investment...other than time. And, with these components, it might take a bit of time to sell...but...with only $20 invested, I would probably do it...
