80's Univega Sportourun value

. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the G stands for on the bottom bracket of my bike?. Also, I don't see many Sportours for sale on Ebay. Are there less of this model out there? Any Idea of the value of the bike in Southern CA market?

The early 80's sports series Univega's are pretty basic Japanese built road bike. This one has some slightly nicer features integrated DR hanger nicer lugs and the 600 Arabesque group. In nicely cleaned up ready to ride condition in a better market like Southern California figure about $175-200 for this bike.

You Know, The ride is very comfortable and the crank spins like no other bike I've ridden before. Very Smooth.
