My wife's Fuji Espree
I just finished cleaning it, so I thought it would be a good time to share some pictures.
I built it to her specifications It had to have an upright riding position, a comfortable seat, indexed shifting and a kickstand.
The derailers and hubs are Shimano 600 tricolor. Yes, it has a derailer claw. The Espree wasn't exactly top of the line.
The crankset is a 600 Abaresque. I spent a week stripping and polishing it.
Shimano 600 brakes. The fenders are purple heart and zebrawood from cody672 on eBay.
The headlugs are nicely thinned.
The bag is a Zefal, the rack is a Jim Blackburn, the tires are Panaracer Pasela 28c folding Tourguards, the rims are Mavic MA40 and the spokes are DT Competition.
The shifters are 8 speed Ultegra bar end shifters on Suntour thumbshifter mounts. I staind the cork grips to match the saddle.
