Mangusta and Fuji touring III

I am curious about these two as to value, my insurance guy is curious too. :~) I realize insurance value is different than commercial value.

The Mangusta is almost museum condition, serviced and ready to ride including new tires. The Fuji is 95% and serviced ready to ride as well. The are both 23in frames with a 32in standover height, both all original.

Thanks, MK

I'm putting links to photobucket albums so you can see all the pics.

I don't want to give a poor guess of what the Mangusta is worth, it's gorgeous though!

I have the same Fuji Touring III although mine is in really rough shape, I'm almost finished building it into a commuter. Yours could sell for $300, maybe close to $400 in the right market.

I agree the Fuji could almost be worth its weight in gold. $400 easy in the right area and maybe more to the right person.

The Mangusta is a tough one. You don't see many around, and they are usually the later '80s one with 105 or 600. I would say it could possibly be worth $500 to the right sort of person.


Is this for a rider (no pun intended) on your homeowners?

I'm the only "rider" on my homeowner's policy :~) We were discussing my new love of bikes and the fact that they are multiplying faster then rabbits, so I told him I would try and come up with a value figure, some would be tough to replace. Thanks, MK
