centurion elite rs / Raleigh racing usa

The bike market is extremely small in my neck of the woods. I saw an add on craigslist for a centurion for 100 dollars, i immediately drove 30 minutes to the town over only to be told the ad was incorrect and he wants 200. anyhow i came across this
.
the picture doesnt do it justice. the thing is in beautiful condition. He's wanting 170 at least. Is it even close to worth it? sugino crank, cyclone mkii back and front.



Then theres this raleigh that popped up today 45 minutes in the opposite direction. hes wanting 110. Im not even sure the components on it




Whats the better deal?

They're different sizes so the bike that fits you is the better deal. You'd better be pretty tall to ride the Raleigh. They're both priced fairly but I'd buy the Centurion for $170 over the Raleigh. It's a beautiful bike with quality components. If you google around, you'll find some threads on the Centurion elite RS: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...-elite-rs.html
