Look a lot like a Super from around early-mid 80's I think....

The two holes in the rear dropouts, designed for the use of a porta catena device mean that it is not older than about 1978. The fact that it still has a clamp on front derailleur would tend to point to pre-1983.

I can post

I can post more images of specific areas of the bike. I have done quite a bit of searching on the "internets" and am having trouble narrowing down the year of this bike. On the seat post is a decal: RECO???ORA, MEXICO, 1972. So I know it is older than '72.

My wifes bike has the Record Oro Mexico sticker and its from the 80s I agree with dnalsaam about the early 80s that's right around when the guy who used to race my wifes bike was racing

also, the cables guides on top of the bottom bracket will be a clue to the age. i'm leaning towards late 70's, very early 80's.

Fair Price?

Now that we narrowed down the year to a 6-8 year period, what would be a fair price to expect when I sell this sweet ride?

Given that the bike is badly scratched and has virtually no original componentry left, I doubt that you would get much. You would likely be better off to sell all the components and frame separately. As a whole bike, equipped like now, I wouldn't expect more than $500. You are much better off riding it rather than trying to sell it. BTW, the age span that I indicated is 5 years.

Too Small

I would keep it, I bought it at a thrift store, but it is too small for me (53cm). Believe me, the ride is so smooth, I wish it fit!
