I picked up this Ross Professional "Super Gran Tour" road bike today at a thrift store. Just curious about it is all. What year etc. I realize it's a low-end "gas-pipe" bike. Probably not worth much. This isn't about the money part of it. It's a lugged steel frame, 22" (56cm). Sticker says "Tempered 1020 Steel, Allentown, PA." Almost no braze-ons. It has a nice early Shimano 600 drivetrain and brakes. 27" Araya alloy rims. SR bars and stem. Not lightweight, but not overly heavy either. Pumped up the flat tires and rode around, everything seems straight and fine, just needs TLC (new cables, tires, and a complete teardown and lube) . I'll probably just clean it up and putter around with it. Maybe fenders.
Just curious to see if anyone had idea on vintage and such.
