Value on my 1961 Rochet Super Special?

I’m wondering on how much 1961 Rochet super special is worth? Any way I’m not looking to sell it at the moment.
Just looking for a appraisal thank you!

Nice bike. Fork crown and stem are really cool.

I know nothing of Mafac but if like Universal that may be the year?

Be nice to see the bike on it's own without a dozen other bikes in the pic. I know a few quick posts.
No, it's in C&V with the same crappy pics a few months ago.
In this forum $1500, or in real life?

Why not use these pics? Need help identify Rochet Super Special road bike

Really cool bike looks to be mostly original. I haven't seen many of these come up for sale but based on what similar French bikes sell for I would say $300-400 considering condition on this bike a lot of the value is in the frame which is hurt by the rough chrome the more sought after parts crank set, campy hubs, stem and brakes would make up most of the above value.

You might have over $1100 worth of parts on the frame alone.
