In the spring of 1985, I purchased a new Club Fuji with Valite 1769 Quad-butted tubing. The color was red with yellow head tube w/ Fuji forged dropouts. I still have the frame and fork(Ishiwata tubing, with chromed crown), but it's sitting unassembled in my bike room. The following components were originally on the bike when new:

Crank: Sugino GLP 52/42, 175mm
Bottom Bracket: Fuji (rebadged Sugino?)
Pedals: Suntour Cyclone w/ Christophe clips and straps
Derailleurs: Suntour Cyclone*date codes AJ(October '84)
Shifters: Suntour Cyclone (friction)
Brakes: Dia Compe GX400*date code 0784(July '84)
Rims: Ukai 700x25 alloy (presta valve)
Hubs: Suntour Lepree (sealed bearing) 36 hole
Saddle: Fujita Supersoft
Seatpost: Sugino
Headset: Hatta Vesta(JIS)
Stem: Nitto
Bars: Nitto Olympiade 41cm
Chain: Suntour
Freewheel: Suntour Pro Compe 13/26, 6-speed, standard spaced*date code AE(May '84)

Serial number looks like KJ402323
