1985 Ron Stout

Howdy. I'm just about finished a winter's worth of cleaning and polishing raw aluminum on this nearly intact Stout. I have the original Avocet leather saddle on it now instead of the WTB shown in the big picture. All that's left is for me to track down those hideous and even more hideously overpriced gum rubber brake hoods that it came with. Or not. I really don't want to spend $100 for a pair that's going to fall apart a few months down the road so might not even bother with them.
Here's what I know. The 52mm frame was built for a Salt Lake woman who was an Olympic hopeful and rode competitively as an amatuer with several local clubs. I know she didn't make the Olympics, graduated from school and did ride in europe for a time before an accident left her unable to compete any longer. The bike was left behind as a gift to a landlord who wound up sticking it in a basement and then using it as partial payment for work I did for him twenty or so years later.
It's Super Record Group is complete. The frame is the lighter Columbus tubing and these are the original off the shelf pre-built Mavic rims that were just starting to show up on the market around the time this bike was made. It's sporting the original gray paint and the sort of battle scars that come with a season or two of aggressive riding. I've had the frame checked out and was told that it's still in good condition although if anyone wants to ride it hard these rims need to be retired.
What's it worth?
