T-Mar you nailed it!

Now is it worth $50? It rides okay. Gear shifts properly and brakes work. It may need some clean up and replace chain/cassette/some wires due to some rusts.

Old Raleigh Capri - any worth?

Found this in the thrift store for $20.

410 Steel frame made in Taiwan. Chainstay says 'Sport Touring Geometry'.
Seems all stock. Tires are trash. Seems quite heavy.
