Vintage Colin Laing frames

Hello -- I found this nice old bike that I believe is a Colin Laing-made frame (it just says Laing on the frame but I'm pretty sure it was made by Colin Laing). It has Reynolds 531 tubing and Colnago components. I think this is from the 1970s but I'm not sure. Anyway, I have minimal knowledge about bikes, but I was wondering if there is a market for these bikes? What kind of value might a bike like this have?

The older Laings were often very nice! I've got one from '75 (I asked Colin), and one made last year. I really like my newer one, but think the old one was more cleanly built (no offense, Colin...they're both cool). Colin has been building since the late '50s, I think. There's a market for every well built bike... Please post some pictures...!
