Hi

Just from the sound of the spec I would hazard a guess early to mid 1970's.

Value greatly depends on condition and basically in these austere days what people think it is worth to them.

Personally I would clean it up put some pictures up when you can and think about riding it :wink:

Some nice mid range spec, but I don't think you'll be sat on a fortune. A lot depends on the state of the paintwork. Assuming its half decent and doesn't need respraying, but selling as a renovation project, around £50/£60.

Renovated, polished, new chain, cables, bar tape around £180 would be my guess :)
