1972 Fuji Newest
 
In pretty good shape overall, paint chips show polished chrome underneath. Cranks have a nice patina. Pretty much original except for wheelset and seat.

Wheelset is Campy Nuovo Record high flange laced to 27" rims. The rims look close to be the same but one is Weinmann, the other Arraya. They are 19.5mm inside width, 25mm outside. Date codes on hubs are 72 and 73.
Tons of tire clearance, 1" Paselas almost look small.

Seat tube 24" ctt, 22.5 top tube ctc. No chance to ride it yet, but its too big for me.

Would like to know value, and also wheelset value by itself.

Very clean & pretty. Would love to know the story behind matching hubs laced to different rims. Like I always say, vintage Japanese bikes go for about 1/3 to 1/2 of the equivalent Italian models. So, if that was Italian you could probably ask about eight hundred for it. Since it's Japanese you could ask for around $400. Have fun & be good.

Outside of the larger cities, it will be tough to clear $400 on this bike. It's a desirable bike though. You might do better selling this bike on BF to another enthusiast.

The crankset isn't patia'd/ mine came in a satin finish as this example. Nice.
