Ross Professional Super Gran Tour

Any ideas of value of this Ross Professional Super Gran Tour? The decals were removed as they were in pretty rough shape.

I watched a super mint condition, all original one of these (in white) linger on Craigslist for about 6 months at $175. I don't know if it sold, or if the seller just got burned out and let the ad expire. Take that for what it's worth.

Not professional, not grand, not a touring bike. But the 600 arabesque bits have good value. Too bad its missing the arabesque headset. I've bought a few for those parts.

Thanks. I don't plan on selling it, just curious as to what others think it might be worth.

I paid $75 for one (Black) that was kinda rough. Went thru it (my favorite Bike man did) and the total bill was $320. Replaced / reworked everything on it. Bearings on up. Tires, tubes, rims, cables, brakes, crank, bars, etc, extensive clean up. A complete frame up restoration.
600 series components. Rebuilt and shined up.
His Assistant (who did much of the work) offered me $200. Later, a customer offered me $250.
I plan to ride it this Spring. (Today is Spring, duuuh ! ). My son rode it 10-15 x last year. Likes it better than his Trek and/or Cannondale. Son wants to steal it for his Med School residency in California and Arizona.
I may give it to him for Med School graduation.
I think in pristine condition --$250 is the max. Retail new was about $230. (1981) Ordinary condition--$75-$125.
Good luck.

Nice! Looks very clean, and totally rust-free. New tires. In my area (northern NJ) that bike would easily sell for $175. Might want to wrap the bars. With that done I'd start at $200.

It looks nice & clean and shiny. It's got a good size frame for big boys. Shimano 600 parts. Good rubber. Ready to ride. Not a real high end collectable item. I think you could start at $250 for it and hope for a sale. But, be prepared to take less than $200.
