Lenton Sports converted fixed gear




Hi. I have an intereting old (and I mean old) bike I restored and converted from a sports/touring bike to fixed. I kept everything original unless it detracted from the safety or function. It was a super fun project.
Now that I have a new project bike, I'm wondering what I should ask for it on Craig's List or EBay.

The bike is nothing special besides the unique paint job, but it is fully road worthy with the original components that give it a pretty sweet vintage look.

Frame is a "Lenton Sports" Robin Hood, made in England. Plain steel, not double butted
Saddle: Leather "Wrights" in perfect condition. I think its elephant hide.
Crankset(is that the right) term?: "Nervex".
Pedals: "Raleigh"
Wheels: "Raleigh" steel 27"
Hubs are fairly unique vintage Raleigh. The old pro who restored it for me said he hasn't seen this Raleigh Flip Flop hub very often and thought it was the best part along with the saddle.

He replaced all the bearings and lubed everything. Hubs, bottom bracket and headset. He put in a new stem and Italian handlebars and replaced the brake pads. He also replaced the original chain. He also gave me back all the original parts like the extra chain ring, derallieurs and brake pulls he took off from the conversion, all cleaned.

Any thoughts? Its not a performance bike, but I was wondering what's a reasonable value range on an overhauled vintage beater with its original paint job & parts?

Also, what's the cost range on shipping a bike? Thanks mucho
