Raleigh Technium 460

My bike co-op was given this almost immaculate Raleigh Technium. It looks like it has been on the road 100 miles or less, and everything works smoothly (we replaced grease and cables). The wheels are 27” Rigidas. The only obviously non-original part is the Bontrager seat. The pics should give you an idea of the parts and condition.

What could we realistically ask for this bike if we sell it?

Given you are in Seattle and its likely a Kent, WA built bike, you should do well. Is the co-ops policy to get full market value out of bikes, or do they discount them to move them quicker? FMV in Seattle, maybe $250. Components are nothing special. But its an attractive bike with some ties to the area.

27 inch wheels could drag price down a bit. Around here, FMV would be more like $150.

Cables need to be trimmed and ferrules added. Bricks and mortar coop in Detroit would be selling it for $350.

Those are great bikes. A very solid & dependable ride. Light enough to be carried up stairs & stored inside. I think it's worth at least $300. Maybe more.

I would say realistically you should be able to get $250-275 on a local sale maybe a bit more if your co-op has a full time store front.
