1974 Fuji Newest F&F

I bought this form the For Sale Forum, got it yesterday, harvested the components and plan to sell the frame and fork. Any input on a selling price? Plan to try here at BF first before trying outside venues like CF. Have not taken pictures yet, the earlier seller did a great job: FUJI For Sale Along with the F&F, it came with a set of Velocals decals and a Fuji padded saddle. I am unfamiliar with this bike type. The paint is stripped off, the underlying chrome looks nice if not really Oakland Roadster Show quality.

This is a quality machine but the lack of paint will hurt the value. It is not likely to appeal to someone who likes to fix up and ride old bikes for that reason. I think it's worth around $100 for the F&F.

If it's just a frame, fork & bottom bracket then $100 would be reasonable. (It would go a lot quicker for $75).

Thanks for the replies. Well, a wee bit less that I was hoping for, but not dramatically. I think I should try polishing up a bit first and see if it looks more attractive.
