Ross 1978 compact

It's a 1978 Ross compact bike I read a lot about them I read it's not worth much ... I like riding it but should it be a display vintage bike maybe worth something in the future or should I just ride it ??

Bikes are okay, I guess.

I assembled and sold a bunch of these back in the day. It's a very basic bike. Is yours a 3-speed or a 10-speed? The derailleur bikes utilized the Shimano FFS (Front Freewheel System) as I recall. It is worth fixing up to ride but is not worth much except as a means of transportation (and fun, of course). Enjoy it.
