1971 Fuji Finest in excellent shape: what's it worth?

As the original owner, I have a lightly used Finest 21 inch circa 1971, s/n K7D00081. *Still have all the original parts. Plastic filled Ukai rims. *Right now has endshifters and a newer seat but I believe I still have the down tube shifters and probably the original saddle. Tubulars are now about 15 yrs old.

Needs to disassembled and regreased. Original blue paint in good shape.

Are there people still interested in such a vintage bike?

In a word, yes. There are four or five regular contributors here who would be interested if the size were bigger. You would have to attract the buyer for that size frame; however, the market for older Fuji bikes seems to be quite strong, judging by Craigslist prices for clean/desireable ones and by eBay actual sales prices.

Others may know better, but I'd guess that all polished up, that bike could fetch $400+ in my market.
