1987 Raleigh Seneca

There really isn't anything too special about this bike.  Just a mid-priced bike from the mountain bike "boom" era.  I just wanted one of these since it seems like I must have assembled and sold about 1,000 of these.  I worked at a Raleigh store in Kansas City and when we first opened, Raleigh was selling these super-cheap.  I think we bought a container (400 or so) of these and sold them for something like $250.  I think the less-than-manly color may have hurt them but the price seemed to make up for it!!
