Bob Jackson Olympus with some custom additions

1972 as original owner's documents show arrival at Offutt AFB in July 1972.
Part of a trio I'm looking to sell to a LBS.
Reynolds 531


Tube decal

Full Campy Record
Triple chain set
Cinelli stem and bars
Has the saddle from the Atala installed as I never could break in the Brooks Pro to fit me.
High flange hubs with clincher rims(my modification for easier tire replacement)
Extensive original literature
Complete documentation from original purchaser(US Air Force Sgt. stationed in England in 1971)
I had my parents pick up a new set of transfers on a trip to Leeds but never got around to repainting

You have a LBS that buys bikes? You won’t get top dollar from them especially if it needs any work.

The shop owner is also a collector and will restore it for his own collection. I want to see the bikes where someone will appreciate the heritage and take care of them.

Triple up front as configured will only have a 42 as the small ring. The original Campagnolo triple set up.

I would want $1000 for this one - selling in a big Puget Sound market. Not sure about Cincy.

Also, estimate assumes excellent condition for f/f and components (hard to assess from 2 pics).
A refurb with shorter cable housings and new grease everywhere might raise the price a little and reduce the time to sell.

Nice bike. And it would fit me by slamming that stem.
There is a BF member (at least one) in Cincy with a very, very nice collection. Not sure his frame size. He asks top dollar when selling, maybe same when buying something like this BJackson.

What are the other 2 bikes?

Correct, the original owner also tried to put a 26 tooth FW on it. The NR RD really struggled to get good shifting all the time. When I dropped it to a 24 all was better.
