In October I acquired a man's Soma "Sport" road bike.
I know they were manufactured in Japan, in small numbers, between 1978 and 1981, but that's about it.
Bought the bike from an elderly gentleman who must have stored it in a garage for the whole 30 years - since original purchase. Shows no road wear, whatsoever.
Since it is too big for my daughter - will probably be selling it.
Do these cycles have much value?

The Soma Sport bikes sold for around $275 during the three years that they were produced. They were decent bikes in their time, but I think that they would not be much in demand today. Hold onto it until early spring and then list it on Craigs List. If it is in pristine condition, ask for $120, if not pristine, ask for $100 but be ready to accept $75.
