2 Vintage Ladies Raleigh Bicycles found in storage shed

Hi there, we just found two ladies Raleigh Bicycles in an old storage shed on a property we bought. I have spent hours researching and am finding myself more confused than I was before starting. RB747664 and RL008825. From what I have read, I think the RL is early 60ís (3 sites say three different things!) wondering if someone can help this ignorant lady 😊 find a year and possibly a value. I canít seem to attach the pictures

Just look up the date codes on the rear hubs. Exact year has no bearing on value. Its all about condition. Generally womens Raleights have much lower value than mens.

All Canadian built Raleighs have a serial number that starts with R and the 3rd value is the last digit of the year after a certain date. I would guess you have a 1977 and 1980 (or 70). Condition of the wheels paint and chrome determines the value as does demand in y$our locale. Very good condition $75-$100 each. Average condition $25-$40. Poor condition $10-20. They are good rugged bikes and worth saving. Hub numbers will help verify the date.

I passed on a Grand Prix today for $20 because I thought the paint wasn't good enough. Not campy.

Thank you all! We really had
No idea about these bikes at all. We value the insightful information, we have no plans to sell them but of fixing both of them up for me to use!
