Very clean 1978 team fuji road bike clean chrome zero rust.. strap on peddles about 20 lbs if not less, 21~22in from crank to top bar , newer tires.... price dropped originaly wanted 300$ for it now for a couple days u can have it for $225 not including delv.... will raise price over the summer if I can't sell over winter... willing to drop off for extra 20$ if ur in my area...its sopposely a 54 cm frame.. maybe a 55cm..
First, this is not a 1978 for sure. From browsing through classicfuji.com I think it's a 1986. But the fork is blue, not yellow like in the catalogue.
I emailed the seller questioning the fork and asking if the components are original and received the following response: Its a 54cm maybe 55.. fork looks original does say fuji on. Chrome skirt on fork.. some said it got painted.. if so it was pro done.. 2tone.. yellow and blue. No response to the originality of the components but the same email did also include a few pictures of the front shifters & rear derailleur (Shimano 600 pre-tri color) and front hub (Maillard 500).
It's obviously a flipper I'm dealing with and that is ok. I'm not sure about it all but am intrigued never the less. What do you think?
