1974 Raleigh Sports 3-speed

Hello,
Just looking to get a general current market valuation on this. Doesn't seem to be much interest in these locally.

Rear hub dates to 1974.
I posted this in the 3-speed thread after I got it and before I swapped out the torn Brooks saddle for the current mattress saddle.

It could use a good bearing clean&lube and needs tires, but otherwise seems decent. 21" frame.

Thanks for any ballpark regional valuations.

These are typically worth more in urban areas than in suburban ones. I can easily get $200+ for one in NYC / Brooklyn. Where you are, I don't know... Maybe half that.

As I said, maybe half the NY value.
