CL Club Fuji What do you think?

Just got this Club Fuji off of CL. Any ideas of value once it is gone through and brought back to life? Has pretty much Cyclone everything and the tires are 700Cx25. Has look pedals. Quad Butted Frame, double water bosses and a braze on for a bike pump. Think it is mostly original accept for the pedals and possibly the seat.

Looks pretty cool. I'd think it'd be worth about $250 as-is. Maybe more than $300 all cleaned up.

How much did you pay?

I saw that bike listed in Lansing (I live south of Detroit), but I was unwilling to make the trip for a listing that had no photographs. I can see now that I made a mistake. You bought it at a great price!

Yea, I was lucky I lived close. I asked for photos, but he said he could not get any. So I ended up meeting him and took a chance and got lucky.

Around here, in that condition, $100 is about right. Buyers want pristine bikes, in ready to ride condition. Completely refurbished, $225 to $250 max here. $350 to $500 here will get you just about any vintage bike, top of the line. The Club was fourth in the Fuji line, out of nine road bikes, making it middle of the line. Sold a Club last year in a more desirable size, pristine and ready to ride, for $230.

Nice find. The hits on ads that don't have pictures seem to turn out well often.
