Looking for an expert opinion

I have an old Fuji Dynamic 10 that is in decent condition

Aside from the obvious dry rot on the tires, I can't find much wrong with this bike

I know that some old fujis can be worth more than expected and I was wondering if I had one of those cases (fingers crossed)

Also, I've looked into the seat thats on the bike and believe that it carries some value as well

Any insight into what I've got is greatly appreciated!

Your bicycle is of entry level quality and not particularly valuable. As you noted, the saddle does have some value but not much more than fifty dollars.

Hope that is a help and I am not sure that I qualify as an expert.

The subject bicycle is a 1975 or 1976 Fuji Dynamic 10. It was introduced to cover the upper entry level market and was the bottom model in Fuji's adult, lightweight line. While not valuable, Fuji does have more appeal than many of the other Japanese brands and this particular model was only produced for two years with its successor, the Dynamic 12 only being produced for a single year. The relative rarity in combination with the Fuji name does mean that it will fetch a slight premium, particularly from a Fuji collector.

Yes, some leather saddles can be worth quite a bit of money. However, it all depends on the model and condition.|This one is not without its issues and is one of the lower models. The better Fujita Belt models sell for $60-$72 US in excellent condition. NOS samples of the lower end model like this, sell for about $40-$50 US. Given the condition, this one is worth about $20.
