25th Anniversary Team Fuji

It may be a little too new for conversation here...but I am curious about the value of a 25th Anniversary Team Fuji. Very clean bike with a Shimano 600 group. True Temper RCX2 tubing. Can't find much on-line about it. Assume it from 1995.

It is newer than anything else in my "collection" but it is a pretty machine.

Thoughts? Value?

THANKS!

Pics? I don't know crap about value, but I love seeing pictures of pretty old bikes.

20 years is older than a lot of pro riders.

Its a frame of reference thing. I rarely judge age based on pro riders for nearly anything. In fact, never thought of that reference point! Guess it doesn't have any value to me.

IIRC RCX2 was higher end thin walled tubing. So be careful, I wouldn't get on that if I was a heavier guy. Its going to be comparable if not better to your Schwinn Peloton (in terms of tubing) which was SL/SP.

I know nothing of Kansas City's bike market. If its slower, then wrk101's evaluation is correct. In a booming market like mine, I'd imagine it going for about $350-400, ride ready and with good presentation

Thanks all. It was listed at $250 OBO. It looked really clean in the photos. I decided it was just a little too new for what I want to collect. Which was fine - because when I went to look at it again tonight - the posting was gone. I am assuming it sold. Thanks again.
