Hi guys,

looking to sell this beautiful 80's Raleigh 531, 60cm. Story goes this was a bike provided by a shop for a rider, the shop had it painted by raleigh back in the 80's and did a fantastic job! There are however two tiny tiny tiny paint chips (pictured) but other than that, not a single one on the entire bike. Places like the dropouts haven't had the wheel mashed along it all, wheel has been placed and tightened in the same place since new. Obviously no dents or cracks.

I do have the parts to complete this bike as a full Campagnolo super record groupset if you wish.

Chap who owned it before took real good care of it, told me he took it out his workshop every few years and cleaned, pumped the tyres up and maintained it since brand-new.

I know we have to put a price but I have literally no idea what to ask? Help

Nice that :) :) way to big though :(

Trick is to put a high price and if no bites drop it bit by bit :)

Thanks for your reply! What price do you think I'm best to start at?

Due to the condition of the bike and the parts, I'd like to get £550 posted for this bike.
