My dad bought himself a new bike this year and we are looking to sell his old one. It is a Fuji bike S12S Ltd which he bought in 1980.
It is in excellent condition and has been treated with love. It has brand new tires. Other than that, all the parts are original, and the gears and brakes are in great working order.
It has 18 speeds and also a small metal carry rack.
I was wondering if anyone has an idea how much this might be worth! I have been trying to look around and I'm seeing prices from 100 to 700.
It is ready to ride, my dad was riding it around earlier this month but he ended up buying a new bike because he's riding the Pan Mass.
I can definitely take some more pictures. Where is a good place to sell bikes at that kind of price? I was thinking ebay, but any other recommendations?
Do you have ample positive feedback and experience packing a bike? $300 bikes I tend to sell locally, CL. eBay is not worth the hassle, until you get up in price. I tend to sell components on eBay, and complete bikes on CL.
And eBay is the land of variance. You will see a bike like yours go for $500, and get pretty excited. Then yours will go for $100. I've been able to buy some bikes that way on eBay, paid $20 for a nice Univega, that I sold locally for a nice profit.
a) It is an 18-speed... triple chainwheel with 6-speed cluster in the back. This had to an upgrade, and is what the standard S-12-S came with.
b) It has bar end shifters...nice for touring.
c) Double butted chrome molybdenum frame tubing
