Fuji absolute with drop bars?

Rare Vintage Fuji 10 speed

It looks like the frame says absolute but I thought those were only hybrids. Maybe the handlebars were swapped and its a mismatch? What do you think? Worth anything?

Looks like a 1986, the absolute was an entry level model, but upper entry level. OBO = offer 60 or so if you like it as it says may need new tires. Condition looks pretty good from those two pictures but generally a 28 yo bike needs overhaul on grease, bearings, etc. Max value even when totally tuned w/ new tires (27 inch wheel btw) would be 125+- in my market.

Well not really rare or collectiable but a nice basic ten speed with some condition issues owrth about $75 in current condition. But understand it will need $50-100 in parts and labor to get into nice rdiding shape.

You can find the specs at classicfuji.com. The 1980's versions came with drop bars.
