Fuji Catalog Edition No. 13 (ca. 1983)

Update 8/13/2011:  This catalog is current for sale on ebay.  Click here to visit the auction.

I received a nice condition catalog along with the S12-S Mixte, scanned it, and included the scans at the end of this post. Click on any image for a hi-res, readable version.

This catalog was included at the time of original sale in 1983. There are some markings on some of the pages, some are prices, others are X'ed out. I don't know whether prices are retail or bike shop discounts and whether the x's are out of stock, no longer made, or just not interested by the shopper.

The models appear in the following order. The ordering should give an indication of levels. They aren't broken out into categories, but I've taken the liberty of doing so:

Track:
Fuji Track

Racing:
Fuji Professional
Fuji Opus III
Team Fuji

Touring:
Fuji America
Fuji Touring Series IV

Road:

Fuji S12-S (18 Speed) - mixte version available

Small Road:

Is this type of info useful? Let me know.

Thanks for making available this catalog. I have the Fuji Valite Cruiser in black, and this information is invaluable for accurate restoration work.

I own a 1983 Del Rey which I replaced last year with a 2006 Finest RC. My husband says it was time to give it up if I wanted to ride seriously. ;-) My son rides it now, but I he will grow out of it soon. Thanks for posting the catalog, it is great information.

I had a Fuji Touring Series IV. I was hit head on by a car and my bicycle was crunched into a pile of metal. I want to buy a new one and the insurance company needs to know the exact price of the one I had. In your catalog it has a handwritten price of $435.95. The insurance company will think I wrote in the price. I cannot find evidence ANYWHERE online of this bicycle with the price. Can someone please help ASAP?

Just FOUND a supreme, your scans showed me what it SHOULD look like, she pretty bad but will make a great runner that wont get a 2nd look by a thief. It'll fit nice in my 65 chevy too! sadtler.org with ugly pics next week.

There is no aspect about any of this that is not objectively cool. Wow! Very hip stuff from 83. I have a few Fuji's and love them like my unborn, first child.
