1985 Fuji "Opus III"

Completing the triad of the three different Opus liveries, a 1985 Opus III.

 

A special frame, from the collection of the late Gene Ritvo, I've built it up with components I've been holding in my "vault", the ones I've put aside for the once in a life time Fuji build.

1974 Fuji "The Ace"

The Ace  .... with Shimano "Dura Ace" component group.

Loved by some, loathed by others. Suntour was king and the young upstart Shimano with it's Dura Ace group would eventually be part of the force that would topple Suntour's reign. 

 Here's a series of links to a 1975 review of the Ace from Bicycling Magazine:

1984 Fuji "Touring Series III"

Another fine example of how well a Fuji purchased on eBay will transform itself back into a work of art. My friend Keith's Touring Series III right of the box as it arrived:

Thanks Keith!

1977 Fuji "S10-S"

My 1977 S10-S with it's basic day touring set up. The original Cannondale handlebar bag which holds my wallet, cell phone, extra tube and tire tools, camera and big enough to stow a rain jacket and misc. other stuff.

Suntour Vx GT rear, Suntour Vx front, Sugino Maxy's with drilled chain rings and MKS touring pedals.

Fujita Professional saddle with Cannondale tire sock which holds an extra water bottle.

Suntour Cyclone shifters

What it looked like when I bought it on EBay for $75 and no shipping charges.
