Subject: [CR] 1972 Fuji Finest photos posted to Wool Jersey


Just posted photos of a recently purchased 1972 Fuji Finest that I am offering for sale on eBay.  This bike reminds me of my late teen years working in a shop that carried the Fuji brand - fantastic performing bikes compared to many comparably priced European bikes.  Sure it will bring back some good memories to other list members too.

Overall it is in great nearly original condition, with non-original replaced six-speed spaced clincher wheelset, Selle San Marco touring saddle, bar tape, and Christophe toe clips.  Bike exhibits signs of little use as evidenced by lack of chainring wear and shift mark wear on derailleur cages plus minimal brake pad wear. Frame size is 23".  While these bikes were marketed as "racing" machines, it is set-up more like a touring or randonneur bike in my opinion (except for factory gear ratios).  Threaded front and rear dropout eyelets, ample fork and rear triangle clearances, plus inner indented chainstays allow for wide tire options.

Photos may be viewed at the following Wool Jersey site address:

I am starting this bike off for eBay auction at what I feel is a very reasonable $500.00 starting price.
