try attaching it as thumbnail, submit your post and then 'open' it in a tab. then edit your post and copy and paste it.

will the seller send you better pics?

Use a hosting site, like photobucket or flickr. That allows you to post something full size. Here's an example.

Are you sure it is not a Miyata 610?

The picture is far too small, but the only Fuji that I can think of is the S10-s. Can you confirm the "6"? Chrome chainstays and fork ends would make sense. Are the seat stays chromed as well.

Edit: Is the bike in Europe?

Fuji S-10-S, probably late 1976. In 1976 the S-10-S went to the the Fuji label on the side of the seat tube and it was also the last year it was available in red. However, this one has the 1977 crankset, so I'm assuming there was a spec change part way through 1976. Of course, that assumes the Swedish market models were the same as the US, which is not necessarily true. Still, lots of other parts appear to have been swapped, so the cranks may be a swap too. Too bad they swapped out the OEM aluminum wheelset for what appears to be fairly rusted steel.

I don't have a clue as to market conditions in Sweden, so I can't say if the price is fair or not. Be aware, it is only a high tensile steel frame.

As you say, components vary from US and european market, but according to seller only derailleurs had been swapped so crankset may be OK. What about the stem - real thing? The OEM wheelset appears to be "never heard of". I´m not really in the market for more bikes (other brands), but Fujis has caught my eye and are often referred to as more than desent rides. Approx 65 USD - right price minus costs for build up? Thanks!

The stem looks like the old Nitto I-beam. I'm not sure what the actual model name is. I have it on my Special Road Racer(SRR), which is basically a precursor for the S10-s. People tend to like that stem and they sometimes go for a fair amount of money.

At $65, I'd say that it is fair, but no great bargain. Since it is not in ready to ride condition, I would have expected less. BTW, is it missing a spoke?

Thanks for inputs - see if I can negotiate the price... Big risk it´ll end up with Drew since it is a Stockholm seller.
