83 Fuji team

It's clean and complete and original less the saddle. Rims still have primo anodizing. Needs to be gone through but it's pretty sharp. is $150 too much?

If it fits, they are a nice model and year .. for that $ I'd say it's worth it.

It's not too much. I have an 84 and an 86, they are really nice bikes. I think that year had a double or triple butted chromoly frame. The 84 had really nice Suntour components (Superbe). $150 is too high for a bike you want to flip, but not a bad price for a bike you want to buy for yourself. And, if I may say so, that model is a GOOD choice, but I'm biased cause I have two.

As for $150 being too high, it depends on your market. If I found that bike for $150 in my market, I could easily see selling it for $300 and up if it is in the condition that you stated. The early 80's Team is still sought after by many of us.

I ended up getting it for $75.00. It's a quad-butted tube set. The group is a mix of ARX and dia-comp. It has a bit of rust on the drivetrain and headset. I looks like it will only need rubber and tape. I think the seat tube may be a bit long for me but the TT is spot on. can't wait to give it a spin!
