LAMER ? from 1940's & BASSO from 1990s

It's has been a while since I asked you guys, but I need your help determining the value of these 2 bikes for sell in my area.

First one, the owner says it is a Belgian Lamer. No results on Google... but it has wooden rims and dynamo, with an amazing leather saddle.






Here's the second one, Basso made of Columbus and full Dura Ace (with shifters on aero bars) ...



Any inputs would be appreciated !!!

I'm not an expert on old bikes but that Belgian bike with the wooden rims is way cool and my guess is worth some money for the right buyer. Plus you apparently have the original sales documentation. I'm signing on since I'm curious about this bike.

Edit: is the brand a Lamer or a Romic? I'm curious because the paperwork says marque (brand) Romic

Nice Basso Loto. SLX frame looks ot be in great shape. The best place for both of these is Ebay but then have to be willing to schlep the bikes somewhere to be packed and shipped. It is a holiday weekend so wait a few hours til some of the more knowledgable guys check in for prices.

According to the receipt the brandname is indeed RONIC.
It was bought in Antwerp; curiously the receipt is written in French, but Antwerpen (Antwerp) is in the Felmish speaking part of Belgium and receipt should have been in Dutch.

I think you guys are mistaken, pedals brand name is Ronic, not the bike. How much are wooden rims are worth ? Trying to figuring it out and ebay has complete bike only at 1500$+...

I think you are right that is the marque for the pedals, not the bike. It's hard to read the receipt via the PDF. In any case, that bike is beautiful (so is the Basso but the old bike is much rarer). Not surprising that the receipt was written in French since the buyer no doubt knew French, not Flemish.
