Fuji del Rey 1985

I have a 1985 Fuji del Rey in brand new condition with the original catalog and manual. Looks like it just came out of a box. Does anyone know how much this bike would be worth. Thanks.

Hello dwsjung, welcome to the forums. can you post some pics? good ones of the driveside and the drivetrain? take a look at some of the other threads here to get an idea of the kinds of pics we can use to appraise it.

I can't seem to copy a link to a fabulous Fuji site run by one of the members here but it looks like a nice bike.

+1 The Del Rey is a pretty nice model. Any guess to value will depend on high quality drive side pictures, which will be needed as part of marketing the bike, along with your location. In a red hot market, like San Fran, vintage bikes can bring double what they bring around here.

I had a 1984, and was very tempted to keep it.

this is nice looking. unless the stem has been changed it is wayyy to HIGH! there should be a 'Max Height' mark and it should be below the topnut on the headset.



the tires still have that white mold release stuff on them.



Nice crankset


this is super clean but unless you find a Fuji collector type who really wants it or a person looking for a "I had one of these..." the value may be alimited to $200 or so.
