My fiancee and I had our baby shower yesterday. One of my dad's good friends whom I've done some touring with but havent seen in a few years approached me during the party mentioning that he had his father's foot locker from WWII and he wanted to give it to me. He know's that I like WWII stuff. I said I'd be happy to take it. We got to talking eventually he also mentioned he had an "old 70's Fuji" that he'd love if I'd take as well. Of course I said yes.
So today I went over to his house and picked them both up.
It's a Fuji Finest.
it's been sitting in my dad's friends basement since at least the 80's, maybe sooner. There is a bunch of gunk and some surface rust, but I think it will clean up nicely. I've done nothing to it yet but bring it home.
It does have sew on clement tires which I have no experience with. It's very light too.
That an old taller Nitto stem along with some other cool vintage Japanese parts. And Campy brake line clamps.
I have many other projects to work on, but I think I'm going to go back out and work on this one some more. I've already taken many more details pics in it's grimy state which I'll be posting later today.
I love the chrome lugs. It's even my size. This one is going to have to be a keeper. I can't wait to get it immaculate and then show it to my Dad's friend who told me he didnt even think I could get parts for it any more...
To be continued...
