1980 Raleigh Super Record

I bought this bike (blue) new in 1980 as a Christmas present for my wife ... she never learned to ride a bike. After running along holding the seat for a couple of miles (she wouldn’t let me let go) I put it in the garage where it’s been ever since. We live in Las Vegas so there is no rust ... bike was only ridden (attempted) a few times.

What is the value of a bike like this? I also have a Nishiki Olympic 12 that I rode a lot, but too old to ride now. Is this a valuable bike?

Thanks everyone ... I rode my bike to college and was never as fit as then ... bikes are cool!!

Hello Welcome to the forums. Sounds like a nice bike but some good pics of the bike, showing the tubing junctions, and components. The more details you can tell or show us the better we can help you
