Howdy guys, it's been a few months. Just wanted your opinion on this bike. I think it's a 71 Finest. The Gentleman wants $125, I could maybe talk him down to $100. He claims it's got new tires and cables, albeit ugly ones. Those might have to go. It's too large for me but I love Fuji's.

It's too large for me
The bike looks nice, I'd say $125 is a fair price. I'm 5'9" and have owned bikes as large as 62cm, as long as the top tube is the correct length.
But if it's really too big for you that's a show stopper. I always end up selling too-large bikes eventually, in search of ones that fit better. If nothing else I don't think you'll lose any money on it.
Too hard to tell from that picture. If the frame is rust free, and the paint and decals are good, then the bike is well worth the asking price.

It doesn't look like a '71, the fork crown is wrong. Most likely a '73+. Not that it matters, it has some tasty bits on it. I'm assuming it doesn't have it's original Sunshine hubs with Ukai foam filled tubular rims. That alone would be well worth a good portion of the asking price.
