raleigh record

Just picked this one up this morning. Needs air in the tires (I need to get a pump) but otherwise seems to shift fine and everything seems good. It has a 6spd rear but has low end derailors. Just wondering what its worth and whether its worth hanging onto or flip. Thanks gents

If it has steel rims and no Q/R, I would say about $75 to $100, tops.

Low end bike, with stem shifters, turkey levers, high ten steel frame, no frame RD hanger. If it has chrome steel wheels, about $100 in ready to ride condition. If it has alloy wheels, maybe $150 tops.

Bike styling and paint scheme would be popular with the hipsters to convert to FG/SS. So if you are in a hot market, you might do a little better than that.

Check the seat tube (right where that pump holder is, on the back side for the serial number. First letter will be the place of manufacturing, I bet N for Nottingham, second letter A-L for the month, first number (after the 2 letters) the last digit of the year of manufacturing (assume 197X).

Interesting timing, I got its sister (8/74) below, which has an alloy front wheel with maillard hub and QR, upgraded Suntour derailleurs with a Spring FD and a V-GT RD, chopped turkey wings, and a goofy Bell sprung saddle that I was thinking of listing at $110 OBO at our local CL this weekend, expecting to get about $85-100. Let's coordinate, and let me know when you are planning to be finished and we can list them one at a time (I don't mind waiting) so we do not compete, and also send the extra bites to the other one. But this time of the year selling over here at market value is S L O W.



On second thought... 6spd rear sounds strange in these bikes

Mine has aluminum rims w/ a quick release front hub. I'm not planning on listing it too soon so I shouldn't step on your toes ;-) That's a nice looking bike you picked up (like the color).

Good light... (and no worries about toe stepping I was mostly talking about feeding perspective buyer overflow to each other)

When I saw that you said 6spd, I suspected that it actually is a Record Ace and maybe a Raleigh of America bike... is that the case? If so, it is probably worth $150ish around here
