I saw the other day; two interesting points about it:

Note the Cappella lugs. I have an early Super Course with those.

Look closely at the picture of the headbadge - note how the head lugs look centered in the picture, but the rear triangle is well off to the left... hmmm... (The headbadge doesn't look centered either.) Maybe it's an optical illusion? On the other hand, my aunt has (or had) a Fuji that she'd run into the back of a car. Whoever repaired it got the head tube straight enough except it was rotated to the left - the bike rode fine but sure was odd to look at!
