FUJI S12S LTD - Approximate value?

Looking at this one on the 'bay. Appears to be original except saddle/tires/bar tape and in farly good shape. I had a '79 S10S Ltd and wished I'd have kept it. This one may be a tad small for me, at 5'-9" I'm riding a 56cm bike at present. This one's a 53cm. Curiously, there's no bids on it at present for $79 plus $125 shipping.

What would be the fair value for it?

VINTAGE FUJI S12-S LTD CIRCA 1980-83 TOURING ROAD BICYCLE 12 OR 18 SPEED

If the seller would look into bikeflights, shipping would drop by 50%.

if it's all original, it must need a $175 overhaul, unless you do the work yourself. Anyway too small.

Yep, I talked myself out of it due to the size. Thanks.

Some sellers will listen to reason. I was looking at something on ebay not long ago with a silly high shipping charge. I contacted the seller and mentioned bike flights to him and that I would like to bid on the item if it had a reasonable shipping charge. He lowered it by 40%. A miracle huh. It is possible that some sellers just don't know where to find a good price for shipping.

Nice price on that Tempo, even with the mismatched wheels.
