Fuji Royale: what's up with the chain? Did you try painting it??? Condition looks ok, but I feel like the pictures are making look worse than it actually is. Maybe it's the lighting? $150-175
Super Seraph: wow this bike is beautiful. What are the components? Not enough detail/info for me to make a great estimate but depending on the tubing and components I'd say anywhere from $200 on up.
Centurian Accordo: lower end of the Centurion line, again knowing the components would help. $150-175

Centurian Accordo: $150-175
I've had and sold a 1979 Royale in that brownish color. Rode it for one winter and sold it the following spring. 150-175 is about right. Your crankset isn't stock on it, not that it matters too much. The standard Sugino cranks are attractive, though. The bike will ride smoothly - good for a commuter or around-town bike. Cleaned up with new rubber, cables, pads, and bar tape. This should fetch a bit more (depending on your market). I'd do a re-build just to make certain that all bearings are good, properly greased and adjusted. Maybe older toe clips for those quill pedals? Shined up, it might bring $225 in the Washington, DC market next summer.
I just picked up a 1981 Royale in red, all original, with a little more scraping on the frame for $60. It may become a winter rider for me, after adding bar-end shifters, fenders and my saddle.
The Centurion would be the least interesting to me...
Thanks guys fuji and centurian sold for 200 and 225
I'd appreciate the serial number form the Super Seraph, for my database.
