Here are some specs I scanned in from Fuji No. 10 Edition catalog I have from I want to say 1978.

Let me know if you want me to send you higher resolution jpegs.

Wow, that's a great contiribution, though it is a bit hard to read. From what I can see, the Professional appears to have 7 speed freewheel. SunTour didn't introduce the Ultra-7 until 1979, so presumibly the catalog is not a 1978. Also, in 1981 SunTour made large changes to the derailleur lineup and I don't see any of them listed, so the catalog should be 1979 or 1980.

But what I really want is the serial number and component date codes from your Finest. How about it?
