whats this bike worth?

Got a 1985 raliegh that says raliegh usa on it. According to the code the frame is handbuilt in worksop england in 1985 and is reynolds 531c tubing. Every component on the bike is campagnolo c record. I can post pics if needed. Looking to post it for sale. Thanks for any help

Range of value between $50-$1500! No one can be much help without clear sharp photos, preferably from the drive side.

I never knew Raleigh made such a bike. I thought the Raleigh USA branded bikes were built here in the US. Sounds like it was a frameset that someone built up. Can't wait to see the pics.

The better ones were still made in England or Japan. The tubing numbers of those get weird because they're all Reynolds 555(something) and the couple letters after 555 determine what steel it was. Seems like it could be some Tange mixture or 531c or even 753 on a few bikes.

Sounds like one of the better of the Team Pro Replicas. Many of the Replicas were Japanese (and the quality varied a lot over the years), but there were 531s made at the workshop factory in the UK.
