Vintage Raleigh Bikes Worth?

We found two Raleigh Super Grand Prix bikes in a storage unit that we cleaned out. One was made in Japan and one was made in England. They have been in the unit for probably 20-30 years. We would like to sell them, but have no idea what they are worth. I'm new here and having trouble uploading pictures. I keep getting an alert with no explanation. Any guidance for posting photos or how to get a value? The bicycles are located in Columbus, MS. I am so not a cyclist and don't know how to evaluate the condition, but definitely need new tires and most of the parts seem original. I believe that the paint is original, too.

It will depend on size, condition and location, but I would say $150-$250. Maybe a little more, if it's in great shape.

You can't load photos until you have 10 posts. This helps block spammers.
You can only do 5 posts per day for first two days. After that as many as you want.
You can put photos in the galleries at the start and then post back here asking someone move them to this thread.
Adding your location should help with estimate as value fluctuates based on location

Thanks! I created an album, but I'm not sure that it is available for anyone to see. It is titled Vintage Raleigh Super Grand Prix.

Here's the link to mellie1216's album: https://www.bikeforums.net/g/album/19494863

Both bikes look like they could do with some love. I'd place the value for both at around $300 USD.
