I gotta say, I am a bit it jealous. I didn't even get to see the ad. That bike is really special.

I just looked at it again, I think I do not want to know what size it is. I would love to have the opportunity to actual see it, let alone ride it.

You should have bought the other MB-1 too.

Beside from not having the dough, I'm holding out for a XO-1. The Vent Noir is quite special among all of my recent acquisitions i must say. Particularly, the seller gave me all of the original components. The upgrades he put on the bike are also very thoughtful. This is a bit pricey but I'm quite happy since you don't see these very often.

Yep, fully agree, this was a great score, good deal despite the spend. These are in a league with few equals, certain Raleigh SC's and Moto GJ's being some of the very few others.

I have a frame only one of these with a couple of small issues but it is very cool to be sure.

I'm hoping you can give this bike it's own Thread to show the gang what you scored!
Such a beauty!

Kind of a toss between "are you looking" and wacky-world. Nice part; but I wouldn't call it "rare" (maybe "hard to find"). That, and the focus-impaired and spooky-lighting photos, and no mention of size (other than "bring your bike..."), and there are several under $100 on the 'Bay. But it's eye candy anyway.

1975/76 "first generation" Fuji America. Bike was purchased new in June 1976 (from FB posting), which was just before the bicentennial. 25" frame with 27" wheels. In burgundy! If it were near me I'd buy it in a second. Nice!

That looks like the binder bolt they came with. The seat post was also pretty basic. An Allen binder bolt and alloy micro-adjust seat post would be nice upgrades.
