1976 / 1977 Fuji Sports 5

So I've gone onto ClassicFuji to look at the model of the bike.. It doesn't list components and I can't really tell much by the picture. I'm assuming its a '76 or '77 since those are the only years they have listed.

I have no pictures from the seller so sorry guys, I know they are important for an appraisal but I was hoping to get some general info.

I see a lot of posting for Fuji Sports 10 & 12 but haven't found any appraisal info for a Sports 5. Assuming its in good condition how much would you price it for??

It depends on whether you intend to ride it, give it to a friend, or flip it. It also depends on your market.

I've seen the Sport 10 and Sport 12 close up, and they're entry-level straight steel framed bikes. Steel seatpost. They both had steel rims and a rear bolt-on hub. Alloy cotterless crank with a fixed outer ring? Fuji saddle, steel pedals. If I remember, they had brake lever extensions, too. It's probably about a 29-lb bike.

Depending on condition, and if for your own use, maybe $75-90. If for flipping, and if significant re-cabling, tires, taping, brake pads... no more than $25 or 30. If for just the frame, maybe the same.
