Is this 70ís Fuji frame worth $129

Hi there everyone,
Iím watching this Fuji frame on EBay and wondered if I can get your thoughts on whether or not you feel this frame is worth what the seller is asking? Shipping is only $49 and he wants $129 for it. Iíve been looking for a decent Fuji frame with this specific Headbadge version for a build up but I donít know enough yet about the values and If this is a fair price or not.

Find something local to you. #1 , you can check it out , #2 the shipping pushes the cost well beyond the value. The asking price , IMHO , is bit high.

I believe that this frame is from an ice blue 1981 Grand SE

tpadul. Where are you located? There has to be better out there. Basic 22 in frame, no brazeons for that much?

Check the Craigslist thread. Im in Canada and our prices get stupid but I'd step in front of a bus before I paid over $75 for that as whole bike, with wheels.

The frame is a late 70's Grand Tourer/ SE model a OK basic bike not worth the price. For this level bike I would expect to be able to get a complete riding bike in very good condition local for $200 or so in the current market most places. I actually have a extra small version of this frame in my parts bin that I got for $10 for the whole bike sold most of the nice matching Fuji branded components to a member here and the crankset on ebay for around a $100 total. The value on the frame set is low enough IMHO that it's just no worth the hassle or cost of shipping.
