did you see a transfer stating Super Carrera?

appears more like a Carrera Sport of the 1973-74 time...

spanner twistin' tip -

frame has two oddities to be aware of in case you will be working on the bicycle:

while the headset thread is BSC the steerer is .833 which means the stem is .833 as well

while the shell is 68mm in width it is Italian thread

I sold one in the Portland market in the last six months. Paint was rougher, and it had modern wheels and an upgraded drivetrain. 2x8 indexed. That went for $75 in about a week.

Yours looks a bit nicer. I don't think these have much vintage value, so it's just an old bike. Maybe $125.

That bike has been kept in nice shape visually which considerably boosts the value. Windsor’s don’t typically bring big $$ but that is a very nice example . Around here I would say $150 and it would sell reasonably fast.

Just OK vintage bike but it does have some really great cosmetics curb appeal so I would say $175-200 if everything works good.

Raise the seatpost. Trim the housing. Get it ride-ready. Take it off the trainer and outside for the best pics you can manage. Ask $200, depending on your market.
