Vintage Bicycle

Hello, I would like to know how much is worth my bicycle and the price of it. Its a Vintage bicycle from The Raleigh and I think the model is "sceptre".I searched all over the internet but couldn't find it.

I can't post photos but the bicycle is red with the old model frame and has some sort of tube going around the whole bike (I think it's the brakes)

No its red. The pedals are the same as your picture even the brake handles but the frame is 2 metal pieces going down diagonaly and not one straight and one diagonal.Its also a bit smaller

While searching for pics of a Raleigh Sceptre, I noticed that there had been some for sale on Kijiji. I'm going to guess that you are in Canada and that this is a Canadian only market bike. Perhaps even made in Canada.

Yes I live in Canada but I searched in Kijiji and everywhere for the same model but I didn't found one.Even in their official web site I didn't find it. So I don't understand if it's extinct or something like that

Raleigh used to have a factory in Canada. I believe that it closed years ago.

Your bike is an entry level recreational use bike. In my area, it is a $75-100 bike.

In my area (Wash DC), I think such a bike would be $100-$125.
