80's Raleigh ID?

Looks like a mid 80's - Grand Prix maybe? Looks like it has 555 tubing. What's the fair value of this Raleigh? It appears to be well kept and maybe original components.

It's an 84 or 85 Competition. $100 is a steal.

Yep, yellow USA tends to be '84 while red white and blue is '85. The Competition was 2nd from the top of Raleigh's USA racing line.

The chrome on this one looks to be in great shape. If it went for $100, that's a steal. I would have pegged it at $250+

Chrome and white makes it a 83/84 Huffy built competition model very nice basic sports racer. These seem to be way under valued bikes for how nice they are I would say it is a steal at less than $200 and fair market is $350 or so.
