Burleigh Sport Road- What is it?!

Hey All, I have a road bike Ive had since I was a child... it was my older sisters... it is a Burleigh Sport 10 speed road bike my parents bought for my older sister in 70s ... it was made in Denmark and I inherited it and when in college it is the bike I used to enjoy first time road biking! anyway it went back to her after I had it serviced in the 80s and it hung in garage at my parents ever since! I now living in south Florida and I asked her about it a few years ago and she said donate it she wasn't interested and so now it is mine... anyway over the years I have looked and looked on internet for any indication of what it is or if any value and worth restoring... or at least know any one who is familiar with this brand... anyway curiosity has me in its clutches! AGAIN! Im trying to get pics to work and Ill upload...
lol

Interesting to see a low end Danish bike from the 70's here. Based on the low end steel cottered crank and nutted steel wheels this is hi-ten framed entry level model. In it's current rough shape needing pretty much everything redone it's not really worth restoring unless for sentimental value. Typical entry level boom era 10 speeds like this are worth $150-200 in excellent ready to ride condition in most markets as it is now this one is worth about $50.

nice $50 is cool and I can easily restore it however whatever was originally on it in the 70s components like shifters and dereillers were updated to whatever I could afford at that time 1986/7 and I think I paid 250 for that service and parts... lol originally it had shifters on the stem ... since then Ive been rebuilding and restoring bikes as a hobby and even frame building... I just have never been able to find this brand anyplace! the rear dropouts look to have been welded on instead of soldered lugs... strange but I figured it was an entry level bike.. still 50 bucks NICE! lol ill put it back into full restore however the paint I'm not sure if I should leave it alone or respray... I have some other items Ill be spraying yellow and could add this in the mix for fun probably then would de-value more hu? lol
