Still very new to all this, but I am increasingly keen to get involved!
What has surpsrised me is some of the seemingly crazy prices that old bikes are fetching on Ebay...!
Passing my LBS yesterday, I noticed a vintage bike outside the shop. A Raleigh Courier. Now I had no time to get a pic or enquire about the bike, but having phoned the shop this morning, I am told it has been serviced and is in decent working order.
It is approx. 21" frame, 3 speed sturmey archer and 26 x 1 3/8 wheels, the original ones I'd say.
Anyway, what I'd like to know from those with a better knowledge than I is what you think a fair price to pay would be for this bike and whether they make a decent base for a conversion project....perhaps a single speed conversion?
I know what the bike is on sale for, but I wanted to get an opinion if that's ok. To be honest after watching Ebay this weekend I reckon I could double my money on it without actually doing any more than taking it home!
Thanks for your help
