1967 Robin Hood w/ Sturmey Archer 5 speed

Bike was in a barn for decades. I thoroughly cleaned it up and overhauled bearings two years ago. Everything works well. It's green, with some rust on the fenders but frame rust-free. 20" C-to-C seat tube. 26 x 1 3/8 rims, 32 hole front and 40 hole rear.

The Sturmey Archer 5-speed is its most unique feature. It is a 3-speed with the addition of a pushrod into the left side, which selects normal or wide range for the 3-speed's 1st and 3rd gear. 2nd gear is the same whether the pushrod is tight or loose. The bike came with top-tube mounted shift levers, one broken. I installed an SA 3-speed trigger on the right side of the handlebar and a friction lever on the left. Except for those shifters and cables, new tires, a longer seat post, and a new cotter pin, the bike is original.

Your thoughts on what it's worth?

(I am sorry but I haven't been able to figure out how to post pictures here.)
