1984 Fuji Junior

Ok guys, brand new here. I just want a little bit of information on this bike that has been in my garage for a few years. It seems to be in excellent shape. It is a 1984 Fuji Junior. Can I get an appraisal on it? Just curious to know what the market value would be. I tried to search for it online, but had a hard time finding anything about them. I tried to take photos of relevant things, hopefully it will be helpful

Anyone? It is my nephew's bike and they have hit some really hard times, just wondering if selling it would be at all helpful to them.

Juvenile bikes have very limited value.

Depending on your area, $50 to $75 if ready to ride. Basically bottom of their line, and built for kids. Around here, most just get their kids bikes at Walmart

+1 The twist grip, indexed shifting bikes are more attractive to many juvenile bike buyers (easier to master shifting).

Probably true under $100. Some of this depends on your locale. In Southern California it might go higher, might.
Trouble is at this size, most kids benefit from index shifting which this bike was built before.
The frame could be the basis of a nice lugged steel road bike for a kid under 5' or small adult.
