The Cromor tubing indicates '89 model. Ballpark $250. I sold an identical bike recently for much less than that, but the frame had some rust.

Are you in the US? I agree it seems to an ‘89 model with a replacement RD and shifters. Does the Syncro index or is it in friction mode?

I had a rather similar in white mint, it sold for a $350-$375.00 in the big city on Craigslist. Yours being celeste could bring in a little more if cleaned, serviced, and the conditions of the internals are good, spin strait and smoothly. My white one did have some of the crackle paint but the clear coat was good no rust, the paint issue was common for those of that time.

I think the RD and shifts are original as we bought it from bike shop in late 80s and have owned it since. Unless the bike shop had done some changes to it? It is index shifting. Had a complete tune up and shifts smoothly.

Complete tune up was done and rides and shifts smoothly. I put the cages back on for the look but typically use clip less with it. I live in New England area.
