Fuji Dynamic 10

Hi!

I'm interested in picking up a Fuji Dynamic 10 for $100 I found on craigslist. I haven't seen it in person yet, but am wondering if it would be worth $75-$100? I'm fairly new to road bikes and have been wanting some form of vintage Fuji. I've seen the specs (or what it "should have") on classicfuji.com. I plan on using this as a commuter/rides consisting of 10-30 miles.

Would this be a good bike to get me into vintage road cycling? Thanks!

Is your budget on a $100? Honestly it does not look in terrible shape but not good shape either. I would probably only want to pay $50 to $75 for this... then you have some money to replace the tires and tubes . The paint also looks faded but it could be the picture and lighting. If you do go look at it make sure the wheels are true... if it rides decently as is $75 would be okay... but if you have more like $150 to $200 you can find a much better bicycle.

$100 is really not an adequate budget to get a decent, vintage road bike, in ready to ride condition. Tires, tubes, brake pads, cables and bearings usually all need to be replaced and serviced, unless the seller has already done this work for you. If the seller has already done this work, the price of the bike is going to be over $100. Doing this work takes some specialized tools, or costs quite a bit to have done for you at the shop of your choice. If you have a coop in your area, that is a good option, as they have the tools and often have someone to guide you through the process.

The other option is to scoop something that is priced way under market. This often means the garage sale circuit. A lot of dead ends before you find something, so you will be burning through some gas. And pretty much every garage sale bike will need full service.

I've sold quite a few vintage Fujis. The decent ones start at about $200, and go up from there. And they have sold fast at that level of price.

I have this exact bike...

Hello all, I have this exact bike in my basement right now. My best friend's Dad gave it to me a year or so ago and was planning on turning it into a fixed gear. However, after reading this post I'm starting to think that's not a good idea. I almost feel the need to put it in the hands of someone who has a real connection to this particular model.

It was a heavy, entry level bike with a hi-ten frame and steel rims from the mid-1970s. The Fuji line improved as you moved into the 1980s. If the thing were like new and at least had had newer replacement tires and brake pads, maybe $75 if it were the correct size and you liked it. The steel rims and weight are still a drawback.
