Wow just Wow!!!
That is an awesome collection of bikes. I'm trying to do something like that.
That is a seriously nice Fuji collection. And that Finest is just fine. Divine.

I never built it up however. Other projects came along and along came time to reduce the head count. vetterfrc2000 stepped in to graciously help in that regard. Wow, it's as good as I imagined in my mind it would be!
vettefrc2000 will tell you though, I'm still stinging over the wheels....those Sunshine hubs, Ukai filled tubulars and (IIRC) 15/17/15 butted spokes. Such a wonderful and light wheelset. I can't wait to hear the ride report.
since we're posting Fuji Finestseses I hope you dont mind if I post mine?

Dang, now I gotta get me a Fuji. Had a couple of too-small Teams pass through my hands. Great work guys.
That's a real beauty vettefrc200!
By the way - are those beams of light coming from the sun behind the fence, or are they emanating from the Finest?
Wow, I really like that white! Sweet!
That is one unique and impressive collection! Truly admirable, and beautiful, Vette!
Nice bike! I ride with a buddy how rides one just like this right down to the white color. His is a 1971 model and he bought it brand new. I've got some crappy cell phone shots of it.
Japan does the PX-10 proud, like that James Garner race car movie!
What a collection! Gorgeous bikes, all of them. I briefly owned a white Finest just like these, only mine wasn't in the finest condition. Still I would have kept it around longer had I not needed cash quite as badly as I did. It found a new owner in a guy who was foolish enough to lose his previous bike when he attached it to a parking meter using only a chain lock! Hope he didn't repeat that stunt with the Fuji...
Nice herd of Fuji's

As usual, a beautiful build. I've never been a fan of white bikes, including white Finests. You sure changed my opinion on that in a hurry. Every Fuji in your collection is such a gem and I hope you'll let me post photos of the Finest on my blog.
Well, Scott, I've never really been a fan of Japanese bikes myself, but your collection and these owned by Vettefrc have gone a long way to setting me straight. Very nice bikes.
I'm still waiting for a nicer Fuji to come up in my area. So far all I've seen are Esprees, S-10-S's and such. I'd love to find one with the chrome lugs. And the white paint, wow!
