1976 Centurion Semi Pro even has original owners manual

I live in Southern Calif, near San Diego. In 1976, I purchased an Orange color 10 speed (in calif) Centurion Semi-Pro S/N: M6H13961, 25 X 27 with the original Centurion tag riveted on the front. I put it away in the original box marked Z-361-A and it has been in that box for approx 34 years. I think I put about 5 miles or less on this bike. It has: Mikashima stirrups and straps plus the front foot shield is covered with leather. It has Grand Compe brakes, the shift levers are in the tips of the handle, Suntour Cyclone shifter, the chain is a goldish look and the cloth tape on the handle shows no wear. It has the original Cycle Pro 270 tires 27X 1 1/4 X 1 and has Araya wheels. The front chainrings has Sugino on it and the handle has World Randonneur Japan on one side and SR Sakae on the other side stamped in. Considering how old this bike is, it is in dam good condition. Would anyone like to give me an idea what this bike might be worth?

1976 Centurion Semi-Pro

Thank you for the info. Other than my Centurion having all original parts + the owner manual with receipt, it is identical. Funny, I paid more than the winning bid for the bike originally.
Thanks again.
