What do you guys think about this 1970's Norta (Belgium) with Shimano Dura Ace?

I've never heard of the brand-but that is one beautiful bike! I wouldn't change a thing on it/just clean and lube. I'll take a stab at the least $200+
More if the frame is columbus or reynolds-and it looks like it is. Prices dependant on area. Ebay-who knows?

@juls: Norta is a local Belgian brand, never exported much afaik. Mostly makes bikes for general use but always had some race models as well.

@Kanibaal: you will need to clean it up: new brake-hoods (good luck finding those!), probably new tyres & bartape, remove the computer and clean it 'till it shines.

Here's mine: http://velospace.org/node/35614. This one is full Shimano 600. The bike was sold with fenders and two bars: the one pictured and drops. Value? About €400 to me...

Reviving this thread with another 1970's Norta ('top racer' model) before re-build. Very nice 'gios' blue, Ishiwata 022 tubing, mostly dura-ace, some parts to be replaced and a lot of cleaning to do (they always look much cleaner in a photo than in the flesh, don't they).
Yes, Norta was (and still is) one of the biggest belgian brands in sales-terms. Though they mainly produced city-bikes and sponsored only one pro-team (1978 Fragel-Norta team), their racing bikes where usually very well made.
BTW OP's bike is an amazing colour!
