    1985 Fuji League Value

    How much is this bike worth in excellent condition. Tuned up with new brakes, tubes, tires?

    That is hard to say without seeing the actual bike. Do the new tires match? What do you mean by new brakes? Did you replace the calipers or just the blocks? I would venture to say depending on your location $150 to 200.

    I'm assuming just the blocks, not calipers. I am in NYC where prices for these old bikes are relatively high.

    Thanks!

    Seller wants $300 for it. Paint etc. are in excellent condition.

    OH I didn't see you were in NYC so maybe but pics would still help.

    There's one for sale in DC for $200 right now. Decent riding bike. $300 is a top end price. If your seller actually took the time to service the bearings throughout, and the rims are in good condition, tires new, cables new, chain good, etc., then you're in the ball park.

    Have you ridden it?

    In NYC it could possibly sell at that price but $300 would definitely be too much around here.

    Once again, pictures of the ACTUAL bike tell the story.

    I sold one a while back setup as a cheap SS with cheesy repaint for $180 great riding bike though. So for NYC if it is in excellent ready to ride condition with good tires and the right size $300 wouldn't be out of line. In typical used condition most other places $175.
