"Can anybody tell me what a fair price in on a 8/10 condition Raleigh Pro with Nuovo Record? Be easy on my ladies and gents, I am a newbie here!"

hi Philip,

As has been mentioned, the practice of asking for price estimates is discouraged here on the CR list. Hard for me to say if this is good or bad for the list, but I'd guess that our little group might not give a complete or unbiased estimate of the market price.

eBay may be the best source for market value. Not only do you find out how much was paid, but there are often pictures and text to describe the bike's condition. Other factors, like size of the bike, can be a big influence on the price! Raleigh Pro's are common enough that they do come up for sale on ebay now and then. Some bikes are rare enough that there's not much market data to work with.

So... poke around ebay, see what's been sold, what the price was, etc. Then decide how much you want for the bike (or maybe you'll want to part the bike out??), put some pics on-line, and post a For Sale ad.

Heck, if the frame is 24.5" c-t, maybe you'll want to e-mail me first! :-) I could use a Pro to park between my International and my Raleigh Team.
