How to Find Your Fuji Bike Serial Number




The serial number is usually stamped on the metal frame of the bike, either on the head tube, the seat tube, the bottom bracket, or the rear dropout. You might need to clean the area or remove any stickers or paint to see it clearly. The serial number can consist of letters and numbers, and vary in length and format depending on the year and model of your bike. Here are some examples of Fuji bike serial numbers:



  • F7C10256: This serial number indicates that the bike was manufactured in March 1972 at the Fuji facility (F), and it was the 10,256th frame produced that month.



  • 77B13425: This serial number indicates that the bike was manufactured in February 1977 (77B), and it was the 14,425th frame produced that month.



  • FB125349: This serial number indicates that the bike was manufactured in February 1981 (FB) at the Fuji facility (F), and it was the 25,349th frame produced that month.



  • B54: This serial number indicates that the bike was manufactured in February 1984 (B4), and it was the 54th frame produced that month.




How to Decode Your Fuji Bike Serial Number




Once you have found your serial number, you can use it to determine some basic information about your bike, such as its year and month of production, and possibly its model and frame number. However, you need to know what format and sequence Fuji used for your specific bike, as they changed over time. Here are some general guidelines for decoding Fuji bike serial numbers:




Year Range


Format


Explanation




1971-1974


PYMxxxx or PYMxxxxx


P = a letter indicating the manufacturing facility or contractor (e.g., F for Fuji)Y = a number indicating the year based on the Japanese Imperial Calendar (e.g., 6 for Showa 46 or 1971)M = a letter indicating the calendar month (e.g., A for January)x = a 4 or 5 digit number indicating the frame number or manufacturing order




1976-1978


YYMxxxxx


YY = two numbers indicating the year of production (e.g., 76 for 1976)M = a letter indicating the calendar month (e.g., B for February)x = a 5 digit number indicating the frame number or manufacturing order




1980-1987


PYMxxxxx


P = a letter indicating the manufacturing facility or contractor (e.g., F for Fuji)Y = a number indicating the last digit of the year of production (e.g., 1 for 1981)M = a letter indicating the calendar month (e.g., C for March)x = a 5 digit number indicating the frame number or manufacturing order




1984-1985


MYxx or MYxxx


M = a letter indicating the calendar month (e.g., D for April)Y = a number indicating the last digit of the year of production (e.g., 5 for 1985)x = a 2 or 3 digit number indicating the frame number or manufacturing order




Note that these are not the only formats and sequences that Fuji used, and there might be some exceptions or variations depending on the model and market of your bike. For more information and examples, you can check out some online resources such as [Classic Japanese Bicycles], [Bike Forums], or [Bike to Work Day].


Conclusion




Fuji bikes are known for their quality and innovation, and many cyclists enjoy riding them for various purposes. If you want to learn more about your Fuji bike, you can start by looking at its serial number, which can tell you when and where it was made, and possibly what model it is. However, you need to be aware of the different formats and sequences that Fuji used over the years, and how to decode them correctly. By doing so, you can appreciate your bike's history and specifications, and take better care of it.
