1972 Fuji Finest

It is mostly original and very good shape. Just wondering how to sell it and what would it be worth. I'm the original owner.

Thanks, Mark

Requires high quality pics and your location. You will need high quality pics to sell it regardless, as buyers have no imagination. Half of what you will get for this bike is your marketing skill.

+1 to examples below. As a buyer, I love ads like the second one, eliminates the competition, and sometimes, I get a really good deal. Best ads have no pictures, second best have crappy C/L pictures, with a dirty bike, flat tires, torn saddle, maybe even some rust.

Post some good pictures. If selling on craigslist it is 1000x better to host them from a site like photobucket or flickr so they're not tiny and grainy. You want your ad to look something like this: http://appleton.craigslist.org/bik/2906556362.html

NOT like this: http://appleton.craigslist.org/bik/2905142474.html

I put Sun Tour Cyclone derailleurs when it was new. The current wheels are clincher type rims. Everything else is original including the seat. All decals are still intact and in good condition.

Looks like a pretty nice bike from the catalog: http://classicfuji.com/1972_03_Finest_Page.htm

But seriously, cannot throw out a useful number without seeing pictures. Anywhere from $50-250 depending on condition.
