1983 Raleigh Olympians

Hi,
I have two 1983 Raleigh Olympian 502 bikes. A men's and a women's. They have had the seats, handle bars, and tires replaced, but are original other than that. Can anyone give me an approximate value. They are in excellent condition. It won't let me post a picture.
Thanks, (Houston, TX)

If it's like this '83 Olympian (frame from Taiwan) which I sold last year for $50, they're not worth much.

Entry level, depending on condition of tires and other consumables, along with paint, anywhere from $25 to $100. Do not sell as a pair, as that takes someone who needs two bikes, where your two just happen to be the right size. Sold as a pair, I would expect them to sell for the same as just the best one bike.

Have a similar red one that appears to have all the original stuff. Nice riders.

I sold one in excellent original condition a few years back. I got $100 for it. Very low end bike.
