1980 Romic "Model 25"
I have a 1980 Romic. Since I acquired her a few years ago, I've managed to find out more about this bike -- including the log entry of the original manufacture:
Last number on the bottom left page. 13032 82880
22 1/2" frame
tubing is Reynolds 531
campy record hubs
Shimano 52 Dura Ace, 165 mm
Handlebars and stem are Winpista-- handlebars are Winpista Kuzuki
Dia Compe 5000
Suntour Accushift 4050
It also oddly has stem shifters (!!)
Wolber TX Profil rims
I cleaned her up, had a minor service done (lube, etc), and new tires.
Yes, I know the stem shifters need to go into a deep hole, but I don't ride her -- I thought I might -- but, I find that I don't. So I'd like to know, if possible, an idea as to value of this lovely bike that's taking up some of my prime garage real estate.
Romic ebay auctions seem to be few and far between. I've seen frames go for a few hundred to the just over seven hundred dollars in the past few years. I confess to not being knowledgeable enough to figure out more of a value for this bike. So any guidance is welcome.
