Rampar? Is this a Raleigh?

Hi again
Do you guys think this bike is worth it?

And also, I've google'd on 1974 Rampar and I can't really find anything on it besides (RAleigh AMerica PArts) = Rampar. Thanks again everyone

It is Raleigh, and FWIW I passed on an R-one @ $35 not long ago. Just no real parts of value. Steel rims, etc.

And nice that it has no chain = no test ride.

Bottom end Raleigh. In a hot market, may just be worth asking price. But as something to ride, I would aim a lot higher.

+1 Very few if any parts of value, so as a donor, it has no value either.

It's a bike Raleigh purchased from an Asian manufacturer, not unlike what happens today. So yes its a Raleigh. VERY low end, IMHO I would spend more to get a nicer bike.

The folks above are correct. I baught 2 of them in the 70's for our twins. They retailed for about $119 at that time. However a Peugeot PX 10 at that time sold for only $269!
