Fuji Bicycle Catalog - 1963?

Fuji Bicycle Catalog scan 01 main image

This is a visually attractive, but strangely uninformative, catalogue. Despite the absence of hard data, I note:

  • It shows a comprehensive range of, rather tidily specced, rather nicely coloured, bikes. I particularly like the futuristic FD and FDL models and the colour of the FFH.
  • The one derailleur equipped bike is the CT8. This appears to sport a Sanko F-1 rear derailleur and a suicide front derailleur. It also appears to have a rather alluring light blue inner chainring. Weird huh?
  • There is no mention of the Tokyo Olympics (in 1964). So I would guess that this leaflet dates from before that date. I am betting on 1963.
