What year is my all chrome fuji tahoe? Value?

I found this beauty at my local thrift store a few days ago - 1/2 price day, so it cost me $25!

The bike is beautiful, but what's up with those brakes? - They look like Dumbo the flying elephant's ears!

Any idea what year this bike is?

Any idea on it's value?

Thanks all; I appreciate any help.

It is a 1989 model. I'll defer others on the value.

Those brakes work very well; I used to have them on my Cannondale tourer. Looks like a very good, serviceable bike, even if it is straight-gauge. Damn, it's even my size! Why don't I ever find something like this????

I would say a bout $200 in value super nice bike there just isn't a huge market for basic hard frame ATB's. It should make a great all around rider I know people who have toured across the entire US on these.

Wow! If it's an 89 then, that must be about the last Suntour equipped Fuji ever made. Super cool cantilever brakes. Nice. I would definitely not take less than $200. And, it's chrome. Go for $300 dude.

Its a chrome frame, but...

it its still just a 30# basic plain gauge cromo frame with a hiten fork, nutted rear axle, and steel seatpost that was 6th in the '89 lineup.

$300?...where does that value come from on this bike?

In current condition, if it sold for $125 id be very happy and wouldnt think twice at $75.

Cleaned and refurbished? $175.
And by cleaned and refurbished- new cables and housing(that stuff looks like original accushift housing), grease in bearing ooints, wheels adjusted, chain and freewheel cleaned, etc.

Maybe i dont see the intrinsic value.

Afraid I'm with @mstateglfr on this one. Serviceable, low end Fuji. The chrome certainly gives it appeal so maybe $150 on the higher side.

There is a very clean, chrome Ross vintage MTB parked on Houston CL at $249 and isn't budging. Cool looking but still a Ross MTB. I'm certain it won't move until it drops under 2.

As shown, $75-$100. No lugs, no love.

...I tend to agree that there are so many of these older non suspension MTB's in the world right now that it's tough to sell them. Yours is pretty big for a mountain bike, so wouild make excellent project fodder for a touring conversion. Unfortunately, anyone who wants to do that won't want to pay a whole lot for the bike in the first place, because of the additional costs and labor involved in converting it.

they are swell, very serviceable bicycles that have a variety of uses........just there are a bunch of them, many of better initial quality.
