Retro Raleigh... Any value for collectors?(4 posts)

Retro Raleigh... Any value for collectors?Chicago_Steve

I may have stumbled on a mint Raleigh Super Course from the Mid to late 70's. A little Google search came up with this bike which appears similar. Any value to these bikes?

I would probably list it on eBay since the wife would kill me if I brought home another bike.

These are new in the box and they have these plus a Grand Prix model... I haven't pulled them out of the box to check the frame sizes since I'm still playing politics with the wife to buy yet another bike....

It would make a decent fixie. It's not a bad bike, it has the 531 tubing, I don't know if it's all DB or not. The components were Suntour mid level. I picked one up at a garage sale once for $15. I parted out most of the componenets and kept the wheels, bar-ends, and still have the frame.

e-bay value? you'll get more $parting it out or just ride it.
