    Raleigh SBDU bikes

    SBDU Raleigh's are very desirable and prices are strong, the best way to achieve top money would be to strip down the bikes and sell the parts and frames separately on eBay.They are both good sizes 56-57cm I'm guessing, the 753 road is more desirable than the 531 Professional TT . Need more...
