I hope I'm doing this right...
I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me an idea of how much my Raleigh M-Trax was worth? I have established, by asking here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... t=#1677421
and here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... t=#1677351
that it’s most likely to be a 1995 (I thought it was a 1994, but close) Raleigh “Team Edition” M-Trax Series 2, which I have been told was at the cheaper end of the bikes with titanium main tubes, “so a decent frame with fairly low spec components, ripe for upgrading”.
I have all of the documents (even including a picture of the Franco Cipolletti who made it on a card marked “Raleigh Special Products Division”!), and the other bits that came with it (bike instructions, bits about the gripshft, an Allen key, etc.)
It’s got a 45 cm (17.7 in) frame (as written on a sticker on the documents, and this matches with one of the sizes the brochure and seems to be the approx. length of the length of the seat tube). IIRC, they seemed to recommend a slightly smaller frame at the time, but move the seat higher (than on other bikes I’ve had).
About the only change on it is the tyres and the seat to something that’s more for riding on the roads rather than off-road.
I couldn’t find how to images directly in this post, so I added some to a gallery, here:
Apologies for it not being pristine in the photos. Any advice would be most welcome. Thank you for your help!
