New Fuji Bicycles with 8 speed transmissions

As ever, I am struggling with this leaflet. My theories about it go as follows:

  • It announces two new, rather pleasant, Fuji 8-speed touring bikes.
  • From the, somewhat fuzzy, pictures I would say that the top one is fitted with a Sanko H-1 derailleur, and the bottom one is fitted with a Sanko F-1 derailleur. You can see better images of these derailleurs here.
  • The blurb at the top right mentions that Fuji bikes were ridden at the Rome Olympics (in 1960) but makes no mention of the Tokyo Olympics (in 1964). So I would guess that this leaflet dates from 1961 or 1962.
