Have had this on craigslist for awhile, only one inquiry. Started at 395.00 and am currently at 330.00
Is it worth this and does the ad seem ok? Also, is this the right place for this?

Not out of line, but you may have to wait for the right person. Ad seems complete. Maybe just need a model dressed in plaid looking like they own the world...

It might depend on the market that you live in. I'm in more of a mid-sized city and older bikes like this (even though in excellent condition) just don't sell like they do larger markets. So where I live, I would be lucky to get $120. Also, IMO this bike is functionally similar to a hybrid bike such as a Trek 7200 or Specialized Crossroads. Not the same but similar. Again, these bikes are fairly common and don't sell for a premium price but they have aluminum rims with more modern brakes and a wider gear range.

Here is a Trek 720 for $250 https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/col...319499228.html which I think is about $100 too much. And another Raleigh for $145 https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee...315828213.html that I think is $50 too much. These are both bikes that I would consider to be functionally similar to the Raleigh Sports. While they are not even half as cool as that Sports, for the average buyer these 2 bikes would be the competition for your bike.
