I raced on a Superbe. Back in 1980 the bike got a lot of comments. "Is that gold plated?". It was a decent bike. Put a ton of miles on it. I would say the finish is somewhat fragile. After a few years the gold started wearing off. Easily stripped the gold lacquer off the bike and had a chrome frame then.

I'd put a value of $500 on it.
