Without pictures, no idea. This forum requires ten postings before allowing pictures to reduce spam. There are past threads discussing value of this model. You can search the forum via google and find those, and compare your bike to those. Described by others "Lower mid range 80's Gitane with decent frame tubing."

Thanks much! I'll check it out. I did try to post pics, but as you mention, I'm unable to just yet until I get 10 posts.

I'd agree with low mid-range. By 1985 Columbus Aelle was being eclipsed by seamed double butted CMn and even CrMo tubesets. The French components are decent but unremarkable and by this time were losing their appeal. This was a $399 bicycle when new. The condition is good. I'd expect this to max out at ~$200. Picture assist...
