Early 70s Fuji Finest

This one needs work. Any idea what it would be worth in its current unrestored condition versus restored?

Thanks!

I don't think many people here fix up early 70's bikes... I am taking on a project myself on an old road bike. What kind of components does it have?

Do you know of a resource to recreate old decals, like a sticker maker? I am going to get mine powder coated but don't want to lose the 1972 stickers...

I have fixed up many 1970s bikes. And one of the most popular bikes around here are 1970s PX10s. And I picked up four 1970s bikes today (nothing up to the PX10 or the Fuji Finest above unfortunately).

I just don't have a feel for that Fuji. It has some nice details. In general, bikes that need work sell at huge discounts, versus the same bike in clean, ready to go condition. One alternate for the OP bike is to strip it and ebay the frame.
