Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Mystery bike..?

Hi all,
I posted a query on the buy/sell forum by mistake --oops. I was wondering if anyone remembers years ago seeing a Fuji silhouette..? Maybe 1992 or so. I think it was only available in black, single speed, coaster brake even. Sort of a flat-bar hybrid. It seems like the perfect errand bike, but I have found no evidence of them anywhere. Ideas? Let me know your thoughts/memories on this one.
Thanks!
Patrick

Check over in classic/vintage... There are some guys over there that have just about every catalog ever printer over the last 80 years.

I have a silhouette from maybe 94? My dad gave it to me when i turned 16. It's a white single speed with coaster brakes and I love it! I tried researching it online with no results.
