1991 Lemond Columbus Chromor Bike

I have the above described bike hanging in my garage for a long time. I purchased the frame in 1991 brand new and built it up with mostly Shimano 105 parts. Over the years things have been changed (STI shifting) most notably some take off cyclo-cross wheels (the original wheel set was popping spokes regularly. Wheels and tires have maybe 100 miles on them. The bike works perfectly.

This is the era of Ten Speed Drive Imports and hand made lugged frame.

I hardly ever road this bike. Never been in the rain. It has maybe a couple nicks or chips in the paint by the bottom bracket. Never been crashed. It looks beautiful in its black glory. I think the frame is a 59cm.
I tried riding it again last summer but at 51 years old I'm not into the drop bar position. I guess I should sell it.

What's it worth?

I can post some pictures tomorrow. I have the original brochure but it does not show the Cromor tubing bike. I know, that is Columbus's lower end tubing.

Searched eBay but most of those bikes (frames) are in way worst condition.
