    Fuji Gran Tourer

    You guys are a bad influence on me.

    I have been around here for a while and posting a bit, too. But, I don't own a vintage or classic bike. I ride a newer Cannondale Synapse and still have my 93 Raleigh hybrid. I do however jones for an old bike like my long gone 70's Sekine 10 speed.

    Today I stopped in my independent LBS and he had just taken in on consignment a brand new and unridden Fuji Gran Tourer. I bought it.

    East Hill I have no pics yet as I will pick it up after work on Friday.

    It is black, 12 speed, has Suntour VGT Luxe and Compe V derailers, Dia Comp center pull brakes. It has a stock Fuji seat. I even get all the hang tags and the owners manual and assembly book.

    PLEASE post it with the serial numbers on the Fuji, serial number database that T-Mar started. Pix would help.
    Thanks

    My Raleigh Gran Sport had a Suntour VGT Luxe rear dérailleur that worked very well. I have the original specification sheet. You can remove the chain without breaking it first.
    We need some good jpegs - and.... what type of deal did you get?

    I picked it up for $100 US. LBS price included all the setup on it.

    Pics will follow.

    Great score! She should ride nice - road bikes are very different from hybrids. Watch the tires, the look darkened/brittle. Peformancebike has some GT2 on sale cheap.

    The stem shifters look like Suntour power ratcheting shifters - classy. I'd be tempted to change out for some bar end shifters.
    I like Fuji bikes - I recently sold this S-12

    and my Fuji World is my base commuter [now has rear fender, rack, lighting system, air horn, panniers]:

    Last night I ordered some of those tires. Thanks.

    I plan to leave it pretty much as is. My Cannondale Synapse is my daily road bike. This one is for occasional use.
