Fuji tacks are pretty well known for really horrible headsets (low quality, loose ball, threaded). I've known very few people who can ride them for more than a year or so without having it replaced. It could be that the previous owner had the headset fall apart on them and they didn't put it back together properly. Also, unfortunately, bike mechanics are human and someone may have messed up somewhere down the like as it was being assembled.
