Not really this is a fairly low end Raliegh cheaper steel components and cottered crank. Even this nice of condition I would say about 1/2 the asking in most markets there is just no demand for older low end folders.

I'd be a little higher than zukahn1, but its mainly a novelty. I always wanted one since I was a kid so I bought one. I then re-laced rims with a set of alloy rims from a kids bike. $200 would be tops. Seller will likely have this one a long time, so if you are patient, it will likely go down in price.

At the same time, it looks really clean (no rust) and very complete.
