Reincarnation of the Raleigh Sport....

My wife was given this old Raleigh "Sport" in trade for a Pentium computer 4 or 5 years ago.... but only rode it a couple of times.

What is something like this worth these days, how old it is, or what it cost when new ?

Any visible blemishes on the bike are merely dust and fingerprints (or reflections of the flash from the camera) - there are no scratches.

I have no idea, but I think your wife came out ahead on that trade. How about a few tubs of ibooks, MS operating systems, and other vintage computer parts for the Raleigh?

I would say $250 - $300 in the spring. Hard to sell now.

If you get the 250-300, that would be good...in my market, it would typically, IMHO, be more like 150-200 when all is said and done...

STI equipped = typically will bring $300 even in AL as it's in good shape.

To find out what it cost new, consult Bikepedia.com

If it was only a $500 bike 8 years ago, it must have some other low-level components. I might have to adjust my $300 down some. But I still think I could get $250 here.
