Raleigh Technium worth it ya or na?

Found a Raleigh Technium looks like in good shape other than someone removed the drop bars and put a straight bar on, and seat does not look original.

Other wise it looks clean, it is on a bidding site and the price is at like 5$ with 2 days to go. but it will cost 75$ to ship. Good deal or shouldn't I bother?

I am willing to pay up to 150$ I guess.

It is a light blue color with downtube shifters 12sp, seikine cranks...I think

anyway here is the closest picture I could find to it.

Raleigh had a few Technium models, from super low end 440 to Team 753 Technium. What one are you asking about? The 440 does not worth $150 IMO. I did sold a pink 480 in excellent condition for $230 earlier this year. Hope this help.

If it has a SAhimano indexed drive train and you can get it for $150 shipped I'd say go for it. I'd sell as bike like that for ~$200+/- in Tampa.

It's frankened. $50 total might be worthwhile (you'd need about that much and a lot of bargain digging for bars, brake levers, tape and cables - and the only thing that you might get $5 or so from is the bar extensions). I wouldn't do it.

I agree. Maybe $75 shipped.

Unless you can pick it up (if you are local), price with shipping will be more than its value.

+1 Frankenbike: you will need a parts bin if you want to return it to traditional road bike form without dropping serious $$ into it.
