    Fuji Espree Mixte- almost too nice to sell

    I kind of hate to part with this one but the whole family is covered for road bikes.

    Here it is as found,



    And after a complete rehab, I'm amazed at how nice this bike turned out.



















    Should be leaving with a proud new owner this evening.

    Shame. I was about to try to convince you to keep it. Fuji mixtes convert to city bikes quite nicely. There's something wonderfully refined about their stylings. I'm sure the buyer is going to love it!

    I've redone some Fuji's and have found every one of them to be nice bikes. Their paint really seems to hold up well.

    I've got my share of Fujis but I'd have a hard time parting with that one!

    It's a really small bike, only 50cm and my two Raleighs are a 64cm and a 68cm so it's WAY too small for me. I felt like a trained bear riding it over to take the pictures

    My son has five bikes already, I just got my wife a gorgeous little Bottecchia and my 10 year old daughter simply isn't ready for something that nice unfortunately.

    If my wife hadn't just gotten the Bottecchia it probably would have been hers.

    BTW-Thanks once again for the kind words guys.

    It left tonight with the father of it's new owner, a guy bought it for his daughter. Hopefully she enjoys it and cares for it well.
