Late 70's Fuji, described as ready to ride

27" wheels, 12-speed, molybdenum frame, appears decent online
I'm expecting to buy tubes, reflectors and cables right away- and tires within a year

m@d, to use pics off your own computer you need to use the attachment feature.

Search the forum, you will find several threads on attaching pictures. Be sure to sort your search by relevance. Otherwise, the search feature doesn't work very well.

Valuation is all about condition and component grade.

Large, drive side photos are very helpful in dating a bike. Please post the serial number from the bottom of the bottom bracket. A list of component brand and names is good, too.

Here is a link to the Vintage Fuji site.
