Don't no of the year but it's a black Raleigh Capri 410. Everything's original,tires and all. Tires are in great shape still. Twould small half-inch scratches. Any guesstimates?

These are heavy, lower end bikes from the mid 80s. If all original it typically needs to be fully overhauled. In my area this is maybe a $75 bike. May be worth a bit more in a hot market.

No more than $50. It rides like a 1970's Buick Lesabre

That's about a 1970, because my family had a Pontiac Tempest that color, with a 350 V8.

A 2 door is likely a Electra 225 or Wildcat, not a Le Sabre
However, I am no Buick expert.

As an aside, I have a Capri that I rebuilt from a bare frame. I put on some nice wheels (Nuovo Record hubs with Magic rims) and a batch of my preferred parts, and it actually is a pleasant bike to ride.

Good wheels can make a huge difference.
