You’ll need much more info for help with that. For starters a model name.

There are several threads about Marathons in C&V Appraisals. Search those while you are accumulating enough posts to put up some pics.

After ten posts over three days, you can post pictures to threads. But, you can post pictures to your private album right now, and others can put them in a post for you, until then.

The only Raleigh Marathon models that I have ever seen were lower level bikes made by Raleigh USA in the mid 80's.

Me too. And if it has been sitting for as long as you think, it will need complete refurbish, not just a tune up. The Marathons I have owned and seen had zero collector interest.

Please don't confuse ebay "asking" prices with "selling" prices. Many sellers never get their ask price. some are far from it. Value is determined once an item actually SELLS. Its easy enough to check SOLD prices.
