    No Fuji bike is a POS.

    But, name notwithstanding, it is not a "Special" bike either. Stem shifters, kickstand, and safety brake levers point towards middle to lower end Fuji.

    Looks like it might be one of these: http://www.classicfuji.com/Tourer(Ro...1975_PageB.htm

    In LA, the land of the 160 dollar 10 dollar bike, 30 bucks for a decent steel frame aint too shabby, although I don't know why I'm even looking at this I don't need another bike

    Bottom end gas pipe bike. But if it fits, and the price is right, you might try it.

    I would hold out for a better bike, one with alloy components and a cromoly frame.

    Yea, but the ones on the '75 model are pretty sweet. And I like the orange also.
