Help ID Fuji and cranks

Have only one picture - looks like entry level Fuji, would like to know approximate year/model.
But mostly intrigued by the crankset - looks real nice, any guesses?

Claw derailleur, suicide shifters, cable clamps, no chrome, lower end late 1970's is my guess! Chainstay appears to say 12 speed. Try classicfuji.com

Possibly a Sugino Super Maxy crankset?

That would have been great - it does resemble it in shape but I am not sure it is Super Maxy. Seller did not respond yet. My idea is to swap the cranks to one of my spares and use this crank on another build. Price is right for Toronto, appears to be clean, I may even keep it is a trainer or backup bike if it fits.
I agree with oddjob2 that it is likely bottom of the line Fuji but I honestly cannot recall a single Fuji I did not like. All the ones I had (including recently bought modern Fuji Track Classic for missus) were very good rides. May be not exceptional like some thoroughbred racers but nice solid bikes

It most closely resembles Sagres from 1984 http://classicfuji.com/1984_16_Sagre...Mixte_Page.htm
But decals do not look the same - possibly different for Canadian market?

And nevermind - sold, ad is gone. Too bad - looked like a good buy for $100 (that's about $87 in USD at current rate :-)).

No, it is showing in Michigan. Overprice IMHO.

Not a Sagres, which has steel chainrings. I think PatTheSlat called them right, if not Super Maxy then a Fuji by Sugino. I've flipped about 5 Fujis last year, all but the Supreme had the pantographed cranks. Ebay sold prices are $30-$40.

Wow - some sci-fi or scam is going on here! It was listed about 2 hrs ago here in Hamilton (which is ~400km from Ann Arbor). Or our guy was lazy and just posted it with pictures from US ad. At 275 - totally overpriced. I totally dig the cranks - would have look great on my wife's Fuji
