What is it worth

I have a Ross Eurosport bicycle in my basement. I believe it is from the 70s or 80s. How can I figure out its worth? What else do I need to let people know? And how do I figure it out. It says that it has tempered lug frame. I don't even know what that is. Also, Ross bicycles can go from 249 all the way to 600.00 on ebay.

The Eurosport is a low-end model, maybe worth $75-100 if in good condition. You can't go by ebay's listed prices for value unless you look at sold listings.

He's being generous. If it's neglected and unridden for 10+ years, worth 1/2 of above guestimate.

Post a pic. BTW, Ross bikes also can go all the way down to $20 for value....in fact, I'd say the majority of old Ross bikes are in the $20-$100 range.

Thank you all for answering me. I couldn't post a photo because this site is being weird.

Karen,

Because of internet spammers, we have had to set limits on how soon a new forum member can fully use our website.

You need to get to 10 posts before you can post links or pics.

What color is your bike?
