I've had quite a few Fujis from the 1980s, but none from the 1970s. And none hold a candle to this collection. WOW. I have to find a Finest.

Beautiful bikes! Great looking collection! I love the racks on the Red America.

I'm still looking for a Fuji America but I'd settle for a Finest! A nicer Fuji has evaded me. Maybe this will be the year.

Like Thrifty Bill, I've had a number of 80's Fuji bikes. The only 70's Fuji that I've had is now my brother's bike. 1979 Gran Tourer. I found it NOS about four years back.

Thank you Scott, I have a great group of friends!

This is nothing like your Fuji collection from the 80's!

To ride a Fuji is to love a Fuji, which can lead to long-term addiction to Fujis! That red '76 America is definitely some great looking bike. I've had a bunch of "Special Road Racers", and now have an '81 eighteen-speed S-12-S. I even owned a '79 Gran Tourer back in the '90s. I have yet to get my hands on a higher-end Fuji like the ones you have, but even mid-level Fujis are fantastic.

A truly admirable and sensational collection. Your attention to detail is equally admirable! They are all beautiful, but my favorites are the Pro and the Ace!
