1982 Fuji Supreme

I was wondering how much this was worth? Is it a pretty good price?

it depends on what kind of bike your looking for and if it fits you. if you want a "10spd" with actual working gears pass. if you want a ify single speed (SS) it may be OK but I would just bite the bullet and get a SS from a shop.

SS=Single speed. The bike in the photograph is set up as a single speed. If you look at the gearing, it is very low. That gear ratio would work well for climbing, but would be very frustrating if you want to move quickly in the flats. Personally, I would pass.

Gearing is stupid low, as is the rest of the bike. Iphone holder? Really? I have SS mountain bikes that are geared almost twice as high as that one, but fortunately that's an easy fix.

Mostly junk components (crankset, spray painted frame, pedals, seatpost) with the only exceptions being the brake calipers and wheelset. I would not pay $150 for it, considering you could get a decent road bike for that money and then convert it to SS for about $20 if you choose.

Pass.

I would pass on this bike the half ass ghetto SS conversion and junk pedals, plus new brakes with old junk Dia-compe levers, just kills it for me. Who ever built this bike into a SS is a total hack. What was done to this nice bike is almost criminal. Yet it would be an OK buy if the owner has the stuff they striped off the bike and would include it for say $100-$125 max.
