Olmo Vintage Touring Bike - Help

Hello everyone! I was hoping to find some help identifying the model and year of the attached Olmo classic road bike. I bought it over 15 years ago, and I think it is a mid-80s build called a "Gentleman"? Anyway, also looking to get an estimated value, as I am interested in selling, so any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated!

dating looks right on.

good to see she survived katrina.

wonder if brakes original.

can see nothing to suggest "touring" however.

no eyelets for rack or mudguard mounting.

top tube transfer is signature of giuseppe olmo, cycling champion of los angeles olympics of 1932.

Nice racing bike. Road bike. Sell it between $200-400 depending on your market. Looks like it could stand to be cleaned up a bit.

Looks like Gentleman based on Columbus Aelle tubes. Nothing wrong with these low-grade tubes in Columbus hierarchy. I'd not sell it, rather ride it like nobody's business. Olmos are famous for ride quality.

If I owned that bike and it fit me, I would keep it. Very nice!
