Fuji Help

I picked up this Fuji road bike and would really like some help to identified. The serial number is KJ402144
I was told they paid $1500 for it in 1987 but i was also told it was Titanium.
I paid $80 for it. It does run very nice handles decent and seems pretty fast( well for an old fat guy working it)
I put a new chain on it as the chain was seized. These were the pictures she sent me. I cleaned it up a bit the paint seems okay

Looks like you got a bargain! Here is a site with all the old Fuji catalogs and specs.... http://www.classicfuji.com/index.html

This is the link for the 1987 Titanium models ... http://www.classicfuji.com/TitaniumSprint_1990_Page.htm
Has it been repainted? Looks like the color the Club Fuji came in. The 105 and 600 components are quite nice to find on an $80 bike.

Duplicate thread, already discussed model and value. Seller obviously wrong about original price.
