Old Fuji Absolute find **PICS**

Picked this up at the local thrift shop Friday. Still had the sticker on it from the local LBS that Ive been dealing with lately. That was pretty cool. From what I figure, it's an early '80's model?

Graphics, derailleurs and tubing all look like mid-to-late 80s to me.

Nice find!

I paid $60 for it. I have no idea what it's worth, but I know that Fuji's a good brand. The bike looks brand new! The frame size seems a little small for me, but I couldn'r pass it up. The seat tube measures about 18-19".

Thanks, I was wondering what the original price was. I'm just getting into classics and I thought that it looked pretty cool.

Well worth $60 in my opinion. It looks like it was ridden down the driveway once and then stored in the living room under a silk sheet.
