I think it's overpriced by $100-$150. The rear wheel is original and the silver front is a replacement. Mismatched tires, some paint scratches on the stays. It's an OK mid-range bike, but the paint's not flashy and Fuji doesn't have the cred to push it to $275 in its current condition.

It's a $ 100.00 bike as is

Maybe $ 125.00 depending on location
