Team Fuji, is it valuable?
Well guys, I bought a Team Fuji for next to nothing, and upon closer inspection, it looks like it needs some frame repair (seat tube has come away from the seat lug at the rear). I'm wondering if this bike is rare or valuable. It came with full 6400 series 600 groupset. The strange thing though that caught my eye was that the shifters were clamp-on's, and the downtube appears to have the braze on for Shimano AX aero shifters. I don't really know the history of the bike, but it appears to be from 82-84 minus the 6400 parts. Would this bike be a candidate for a restoration? I was thinking about having the bike repainted to a more appealing color when the frame is repaired, and also adding downtube braze-on's (removing the AX braze-on) . However, I know AX is kinda rare, so would I be hurting the historical value if there is any by moding it. The bike is pinkish with a black headtube. Any other information about this bikes history would be greatly appriciated! Thanks a bunch guys!
