FUJI Series IV...what's it worth???

Hi all, new here.
I was looking into selling a Fuji series IV 18 speed bike I have but dont really have a clue what it may..or may not...be worth? The "ForSale" section wont let me post yet.
If any of you have any info on this model of bike please give me your opinion, It,s in fantastic shape but does need tires. Reply to this post or just contact thru osbornes54@yahoo.com
Thanks for any input, E.

You have to pay to post in the 'for sale' section.

A pristine Fuji Series IV could be worth a lot, they have gone for as much as $600 on eBay. I sold a mint one for $350 locally this Spring, because the guy who bought it was a nice guy, and I had very little into it.

To get the most money for it, list it on eBay, the market will set the price.

Otherwise you must host them on another site, and then link to them within the message..

Very rare. $1,500 for excellent example. Worth $2,000 if mint with good original tires.

JohnnyBee.
Oh, almost forgot. I then walked 20 yards ( Swap Meet) and bought
a mint Touring Series V.

Try finding one of those in mint condition.



JohnnyBee lucky !

I bought my Fuji Touring IV on CL last month for $130. It had a couple of dings on the top tube but does not affect the frame's integrity. The paint is a bit old, especially around the down-tube decal, but still good for the most part. I took it apart and regreased everything and gave it new cable and housing and it rides absolutely fantastic!

Thanks all for the info...CB400, I am in the Greenville\Greer area of Upstate SC.
I have listed the bike on Craigslist.com for now at $100.00, have had several emails. If not sold there it will go to ebay. I am being told from measurements that it's a 24-24-1\2" frame? Crossbar to ground measures 34", Pedal hub to top of seat tube is apx. 24-3\4". This might help those bike experts out there with the size.
thanks, Ed
