1970-1971 Team Raleigh Professional Sport

My father just recently passed away and I have this 1970-1971 team Raleigh professional sport bicycle and I want to sell it but I donít know where to begin or how much itís even worth. Hoping that you all would? He said he paid a pretty penny for it when he bought it, but I have no idea what it would be worth now.

thanks

Does it look anything like mine from '73? You can find brochures online from the 70's to help you pinpoint the look.
Originality and condition matter most.

Since you cannot yet post photos, you could describe a few things.
Serial #, stampings inside crank arms, top of rear derailleur, and brake calipers, and if you see any chrome.
The early Pros are very rare.

I am not educated on bikes so forgive me if Iím incorrect on anything

On the inside of the crank arms is stamped NC 41 201 on one and the other is a symbol that resembles ďAEĒ.

the rear derailleur says simplex

the front brake caliper says Raleigh 610 Weinmann and the rear says raleigh 750 Weinmann

im not clear as to where to look for the serial number

Look at the picture above. Focus on details, ignore the "big picture". Big picture all Raleighs look about the same. Small details like where do you see chrome. "Team Professional Sport", at least one of those words don't belong. Another small detail, where are shift levers located? Third one is cable routing. Are guides built into the frame or does it have individual clamps bolted to the frame, as the one above.

Simplex plus Weinmann brakes typically means down a few notches.

The shift levers are located on the top of the frame right below the handle bars

Stem mount usually means lower rung on the ladder of quality.

Since I don't know model, condition, or where you are located. I have no idea. Could be way overpriced, could be a deal (doubtful).

Raleigh used the team color scheme on a number of models, tie in with the pro team.

the vintage I think is suspect.

probably a Record level bike. Really need images. The color scheme will attract some.
the mentioned components meh
well at least the Simplex derailleurs, they do not age well.
