Hiya hoping someone can help, we are clearing out my partners parents garage and have uncovered 2 muddy fox courier bikes (think 1987?) they're in original condition with only very slight signs of wear. We put them on Facebook and have been absolutely flooded with messages about them even after deleting the post. We realise we had massively underpriced them and just want to make sure we are getting what we can for our parents, don't suppose anyone could give us a nod in the right direction price wise if possible please?

truth be told it's always hard to put a price on retro stuff, assuming good condition and good working order, as much as £300 for the gents, less for the ladies, the retro thing is very male orientated. will also depend on the exact model, there's always someone after a nice muddy fox though.

but one thing is always true, they'll find their price, if you advertise them at £300 and they don't sell, you drop the price incrementally until they do.

Thank you that's really helpful, I did try to post photos but couldn't get them to upload. They are both gents, I'm not sure if 1983 or 1987,they've had very little use and been stored in the garage their whole life.
Thanks again, much appreciated

£150 should see it sell , you can try for more with a view to dropping the price if it doesn’t sell though.
The ladies version would be worth less however.

Hi I've had private messages asking about the bikes but it doesn't let me reply to them sorry, it also doesn't let me add photos to my original post so I'm not sure how to give more information sorry!

Here are some photos of the two bikes in question - they're nice. (There might be two or three more photos to come: I'll check through them later.)

I would be thinking upwards of £200. They look in great condition. Don't be afraid to start high.
