That is the first generation Finest. Available in white or more commonly blue, all chromed underneath. Forged dropouts with an unusual name on them I forget. Available in 21, 23 and 25" frame sizes. The early 25" frames have really short top tubes becaues Fuji didn't know how to size a large frame yet..
