Fuji 1988 Del Rey Road Bike

Hi,

I came across this bike for sale on Craigslist and I wanted to know if it was worth the price ($350) and possibly, more about that model. The owner could offer me very little information about it. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

It looks like a 1985



After a mechanical overhaul and cleanup, I think +/- $200 would be a fair value.

Maybe in a crazy market it would go another $50-$75, but $350 is a lot of money for that bike.

+1 Sold one in pristine, fully rehabbed (new cables, housings, tires, bearings, grease, etc), ready to ride condition for $225 last year. I considered that full market.
