Please help me with Fuji league 1985 worth (good condition)

Hi, I have a 1985 Fuji league in very good condition ( the colour is "jet silver") with all the original components. Nobody seem to have ridden it much. Only the seat has some cosmetic damage to the leather. I would gladly ride this bike myself, but the frame is too large for me. So I was wondering how much this bicycle could be worth?

Nice cosmetic condition, but it is a 30 year old bike that needs servicing as the original lubricants protecting the bearings is all hard and dried up. I would list if for $150-$175 and if you don't get any serious bites, knock it down $25 every ten days.

Good luck!

Any chance you bought that in Houston off Craigslist? Was listed at $100 if I recall correctly. I think it's a $150-$200 bike.

150 right now.

The pictures you show have some serious grime. It'll take a lot of work to get it cleaned and ready to ride.

Thank you everybody for your kind input. No, I didn't buy it from craigslist lol, my father bought it in the 90s, but never used it, so no sentimental value here either. I was hoping it might turn out to be a rare bicycle worth something, but oh well. I think i'm better off taking those vintage components and putting them on some other frame that fits me better. I'm new to this forum and everyone seems to be so knowledgeable and kind. Thanks again everybody, you've been very helpful.

It's a very nice bicycle. Fuji really built a great drivetrain with Sugino + Suntour components. Comparable Italian bikes would be priced well over $600. But, since it's just a Japanese imitation of a European bike expect to get less than half that.

I know it's been a year or so since this post, but would you consider selling the front fork only? I recently found a silver League with a dif. fork. I'd love to replace it

Hi! I sold the whole bike to some really tall bike enthusiast.
