In my area I would be looking for $325-$350. But these days it very much depends on your local market. Nice bike!

It would depend on the condition of the wheels & tires to me. If it's still got the original 1988 tires then maybe $200. With new tires & chain $300.

The tires have been replaced. Originals were gumwalls. https://classicfuji.posthaven.com/19...-no-18-edition

I've had two 1989 Club Fujis with the Shimano Exage Sport light action component group. They were nimble riders who punched well above their weight class.

This one has the more rare Suntour Ole drive train group. This is a 2nd Gen cyclone variant. To get it to index well is an art. Use a 9-speed chain and be very careful with shift housings and ferrules. Everything snug and cable runs optimally short.

To sell, properly set up for indexing, with new cables and chain, I'd put this at $375 in my DC market. To buy in its current condition, no more than $150 if I were intending to keep it and ride. To flip, no more than $100.

My only other comment is that this will be a 6-speed freewheel rather than the '89's 7-speed Uniglide freehub. So you'll need to keep the freewheel spacing to match the Ole indexing.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond to this thread. I had this also listed on eBay. Just sold for $500. Great bicycle, didn't realize the gem that I had in storage for over 20'years
