Early Import Fuji Tourer

Here's something a little uncommon I found back in late summer. It's a Fuji Tourer but unlike any other I've ever seen before.

First, the decals don't seem to correspond to any of the Fuji catalogs online.
Second, and more interesting, there is no serial number anywhere on this bike.

In my research I learned that some of the early Fuji imports from 1969 or 1970 were indeed shipped without serial numbers. Kinda cool huh?

Obligatory pictures:









Pretty, isn't it? It's a very nice riding bike. Smooth as silk going down the road.

Enjoy!

Dan

Wow! Nice work! I remember what that bike looked like on the original CL add! Funny, I thought of you today, as I was in Philly with the kids (Center City) and saw 3 orange UO-8 Pugs!

Thanks! It cleaned up nicely. Funny you mentioned the Pugs, -holiday76 stopped by today and was admiring them. He liked the mixte a lot.
