1980 Romani Bike

I bought this bike back in 1980 from Mel Pinto in Falls Church, Virginia.

It's been repainted from the original blue. Pictures are posted on flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/1561518...7628070857584/

Also added cable guides and front derailleur braze-on when the frame was repainted.

Any thoughts on how much this bike might be worth? It's been hanging in the garage for 10 years and I figured I should find a new home for it.

Thanks - SteveE

I hope someone can give you some information-- I just wanted to say I think that's a very cool bike.

+1 I can't help, but it sure is gorgeous! Mavic tubular rims? GP4s perhaps?

Hello Steve
Would you be able to put some pictures up from the bicycle with the original blue painting? Is for me one Romani from this era. I would like to bring it into the original form. I am with the stickers in a trouble mainly. Thanks.
