Hi friends, I just acquired a Fuji finest. The challenge that I have in dating it, is that I cannot make out the serial number. I can make out the last two digits, but that is all. I have done some reading on similar Finests, and I can narrow it down to the early 70's! I will post some pictures, or a link to photobucket. Thanks to all for your time, and feedback. It is greatly appreciated.
Forget the serial number, just check the component codes. All the Suntour stuff is date coded, and I bet the stem, seat post, brake calipers, fork (steering tube) will also have date codes. Dating old bikes is really easy, as long as the components are original. Once the components get changed, then it gets quite a bit tougher.
Hi Scott, you are correct based on the serial number that I was able to decipher with a magnifying glass, and with the help of the classic Fuji website. The number is K7D0024. I appreciate everyones time, feedback, and help! Phenomenal job!
