I really like Fuji's. I think they ride great. I have a Finest and a Special Road Racer. I would guess either of mine would sell in that price range (probably a little less for the SRR.)
Check that everything works properly. Check the crank, headset, and wheel bearings to see if they are loose. Take it for a ride and make sure it goes straight. I check the cassette and chainring teeth for wear. Your paying a premium, so it shouldn't need any work.
You're right - after some sleuthing on the site, it is a forum member's bike (it's not too hard to put 2 and 2 together after all.) It's a late 1980 model (probably sold in 1981).
Before I drive and hour and a half out there, I'd like some thoughts on the asking price. If you're up and reading this, please let me know!
I also love the ride of Fuji bikes. The America is a classic's classic touring bike. It will be comfortable for you IF IT FITS YOU PROPERLY. I can't tell from the thread if it has the proper bar end shifters, but if so that raises the value. $350 is steep for this bike, unless it's in immaculately adjusted and cleanly operating condition. There should be no grime, a reasonably new chain, proper brake adjustment and newish pads, non-rotted brake hoods, no cable fraying or rust on the moving parts, and true rims. If the bike belongs to a BF member, I would suspect that all of these conditions are satisfied, and more. I can't advise you to spend $350 - that's up to you. You can't walk into any retailer and get a better bike at $350, though... PG
I ended up buying the 80/81(?) Fuji America and have been quite happy so far. I've commuted twice already (about 45 miles in all) and am getting used to the barcon friction shifting... I think I'll need to adjust the brakes a wee bit to make sure the contacts are as perfect as possible. I'm also looking into getting some fenders & eventually a rack on the back. The clearance is very tight, but I have my eye on some VO 48mm Aluminum fenders that I think will look quite sharp.
I also downloaded a nice 'bike computer' app for $4.99 so it saves me from buying a(n ugly) bike computer
