Well.... not sure what the market around here is... but I paid $50 for it... if it's not worth much I may do a singlespeed conversion and ride it.

In my market, $50 would be full value for the bike as it sits. I had the updated version of that bike (Sport 12) that I donated to the co-op.

I paid $10 for mine about a month ago. It had a front basket that a friend wanted. The rest went to the co-op. Note, the one I had needed to be rehabbed. I would have been upside down and not even able to cover the cost of basic consumables.

That's a great old bike. However, it was the base model made by Fuji at that time. So, don't expect too much. If it was all shined up with new tires, tubes, chain, brake pads etc. you could probably get around $150. As-is probably $75. These bikes are very good for upright handlebar conversion. It's got threaded eyelets for a rear rack. Great bikes for running errands. If you decide to sell it then, it should get snapped up pretty fast. Lots of people looking out for these vintage "value" bikes.
