CL Fuji ID help

Fuji Road bike in perfect shape. Everything works great. 700 wheels are straight paint is in great shape shifts good brakes great.

I really hate information-free ads like this. Can anyone ID the model/year from these crappy thumbnails, and take a guess at frame size? Looks like a Dynamic 10 from the 70's and 61cm+ to me but I don't really know Fujis that well. Any fair-price-range estimates are also welcome of course. I have emailed the guy with questions and for more pics but no response yet.




A 70's Dynamic 10 from web:

I'd say you're spot on with the model and sizing .. You're right, it's hard to tell with those small photos. I saw that ad, def. not worth the asking price, maybe a third of that at best. I think the seller is off on the wheel size, the should be 27"s, not 700's. Although they could be upgrades.

$300 was definitely high, but if it's the right size, and in as good condition as he says, I might try to reason him down to $150 or so... or wait a few weeks and see if it relists cheaper. I wouldn't mind overpaying a slight bit, been looking for a old, tall Japanese ride to do a SS conversion on for a while now, and it'd be nice to start with a well-kept one. Do you happen to know anything about the dropouts on that model? Hard to tell exactly how horizontal/long they are from any pics I can find of that model. They're probably fine though.

I love information-free ads personally. The sketchier the info, the better the deal, and the better chance it has of lingering around for a while. A well described bike, with awesome details and pictures either sells immediately at less than market (someone pounces on it), or sells for full market.

Sure looks like a Dynamic 10 to me, if so, that is a really low end bike: high ten steel frame, steel rims, heavy. $100.
