I agree with you Mikl. Perhaps it's worth a bit more? Bikes don't hold their value well generally, it would have to be something special to be worth more than half the original price even if quite new.

Raleigh

I sold a Raleigh Classic for £200 last year.It was in excellent order.The buyer paid exactly what I asked and was a real gent-no haggling etc.I think it was a good bike and would not sell for £100 unless it was to a mate or similar
