My immediate thought was that it was a Dynamic, but the blue is too dark and itit has aluminum rims with what appears to the OEM QR hubs, so it's probably an S-10-S. Unfortunately, the frame would be basic hi-tensile steel, but still it has the aluminum rims and a cotterless Sugino Maxy crankset. The crankset is original and the teeth appear to be in good condition, so the bicycle shouldn't be worn out. It may need a tune-p and a relubrication. It's well worth the $100, if you can do the work yourself.

Looks a lot like mine. As T-Mar stated, it is well worth $100.

Does it have the I-beam stem? If you are interested and if you get the serial number, you can date the bike on classicfuji.com.

He said it was a 1975 S10-S. The one thing I am worried about is the size. He thought it was 25 which would be too big for me but he didn't sound very confident. Can you guys tell the size from the picture or should I ask him to measure something?
And thanks!

I cannot be certain, but the head tube looks a lot like mine, which is a 23" frame. Of course, this a guess and not an exact science.

Yeah maybe I'll just have to see it in person sometime, the problem is he lives a ways a way.

And by the way, your fuji looks really cool Beech!

Thanks! I can't say enough about how much I like it.

If you end up buying it, you should check out my buddy Scott's Fuji blog. A few of us have been coming together to help with it. I really like it, since it is mostly pictures, few words.

There are a few others out there too, if you look for them.

Matt

He lowered the price to $75. I think he is having trouble selling it because he is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. I offered 50 and the driving to go get it, I'll see what he says.

It's over here now...

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ra...072936412.html

it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests


It has a 23" (58CM) frame. Those tires look pretty beefy for a road bike ... that bike came with 27" Ukai alloy rims, but I'm thinking 700 x 35 tires here??? (700c conversion????)....27" Panaracer Paselas??? (which would be nice!)? Looks good for $75...better for $50.

I was wondering about those tires, and the saddle. I'm not really sure what to think about them, he said the bike has been sitting in his garage for the last 30 years, so when did he get those new tires I wonder.
