Falcon San Remo cmplt late 80's or 1990

Hello all,
I have a Falcon San Remo that was given to me new by my in-laws in the summer of 1990. Great bike back when I used to ride with them, but it has sat in my garage for the better part of the last two decades now. Campagnolo components, classic light blue frame, 531c. I'm 6'0 and it fit me... Bike is still in good to very good condition. (tires might need replacing, of course)
I don't think my son wants to commit to the space & time to keep it himself, and I need to do some clearing of space... so I'm wondering if it has value out there in the cycling community. I'm located in the DFW, TX area, by the way.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Yes, definitely has value. Different than value though, they ride great, maybe above monitory level.

A bike so much I bought it twice.

Nice bike. Looks like late 80's with lower end Campagnolo Victory (Triomphe?) components.

As far as I can tell, that's a full Triomphe group, and it is bomb proof. You hardly ever see full Triomphe groups. Usually, they're missing pedals, seatpost, headset or all three. The frame is 531c, which means full 531.

I have this same bike in racing red, though it came with Victory. The smallish frame felt sorta stiff, so I spent some $$$ on wheels/rubber. I can't really sell it locally for what it's worth to me ($700+), so it's in the stable until I give it to a nephew or grand nephew on down the road.

One thing that I have to say about the pictures is that they are taken from angles that make the bike's geometry look very awkward. Don't do that if you are looking to sell this bike. Take pictures of the whole bike from the side with the camera at about the level of the mid point of the bike, not above or below, or in front or behind

$300-600

At $300 it should sell quickly; as you get above $450 it may take longer to sell.

This is a nice bicycle and should make some tall person very happy.
