Resurrected biker

Hi!..I am a way-back bicycle rider that retired from riding a long time ago...I am now retired from my job, so plan to get back into it with a mountain/road combo bike. My old bike is a road bike that is about 60 years old. Not adequate for me now, but could be restored by somebody. It is a men's French-made Raphael Geminiani...original parts...all made in France...Fair to good shape. I need to determine it's value, so will need some help. Any information would be appreciated!...Thanks

Welcome to Bike Forums, glyslo1! gnome pointed you in the right direction, as far as value goes. If those folks don't know, no one does.
