Subject: [CR]Rossin bike questions

I am about to look at a Rossin bike, SR equipped, in 2 days -repainted red no decals, pantographed Rossin and cuttouts.Pretty definitely a Rossin. Have pics from seller. My Masi is 54c-t and toptube same. I don't recall standover height of my Masi (my Masi frame is now being painted by Joe Bell) Current owner says Rossin is 32 "standover height and he has a 30" inseam and he says it feels slightly small for him, esp. in the top tube length.(that's good for me have short arms- a 32 sleeve length. My pants inseam is 29.Is there a good chance this will fit me? I am getting excited about this one. From the pics I like the bike!

The bike appears to be SR equipped. Were Rossins pretty nice bikes? Perhaps someone can tell me approx size and age from the above and pics-My guess is it is an early 80's bike. It has top tube cable guides. Any opinions info appeciated- I can email pics.
