    From about 1975 or 76 in my city. Think the 10 speed in this photo is an early Fuji?

    Tell me your thoughts. The outdoor shopping mall here was created in 1972 and torn up, turned back into a city street in 1988 (after most of the businesses closed.) The photo just surfaced on a historical FB group I'm part of.

    Fuji bikes from that time frame would have Fuji spelled out on the seat tube. It has cottered cranks so it's from that era but the only way to ID it is to match the decal on the seat tube and the shape of the headbadge. Everything else is common to most 10 speeds in the early 70's.
