Is it worth it? 80s Fuji Bike

Hello Everyone, I'm new to the bicycle world and need your insight on a potential purchase. It doesn't really say what model it is from the screen cap, so I need all of your help. Thanks!

I forgot to also add that the seller is asking for $120.00. Is that too farfetched?

Fuji Gran Tourer or Sports Ten. Mismatched tires, cheap steel hubs, chrome rims, frame paint in poor condition. I wouldn't pay more than $30 for it.

I've bought the same model in far better condition at Goodwill for $35-$45.

Aw, man, that cool frame pump is worth $30 alone! I'd bid maybe $75. Maybe even $80.....

+ 1. That's a reasonable price on the bike assuming the frame is straight and the wheels reasonably true. All of the fujis I've seen locally are priced higher than this; the local sellers seem to think that low end vintage fujis are collectible or something.

About $45 at Goodwill Flint, MI. Saddle paid for bike. Below is a few years older, but far better condition.

Thank you all for helping me. I nearly went for the buy, but didn't.

Oddjob2 - To me that's a steal! It's in great condition compared to the other pictures. I'll start heading to a goodwill now.

You're killing me oddjob2. The last thing I want to do is have that "correct number" (of bicycles around the house) "conversation" with the wife again.

I have even walked away from a new road bike with disc brakes (I'd love to try disc brakes) a couple times while in the LBS.

It ain't easy saying no.

I think $120 is "in the ballpark' for that Fuji. Problem is, that's a home run price for a first base bike. Bike as shown is probably worth no more than $75 - $80.
