Sweeeeeeeeeeet. Great build, I like the stitched handle bar wrap, matches the saddle perfectly. Your collection of Fujis has developed into quite a drool worthy status.

It looks a lot like a Brooks Vitesse 600 that I have.

left brake cable should go behind the bars so it matches the angle of the right.

Love it. Desire for Fujis...growing.

On a side note, I've always thought those leather handlebar sew-ups looked kind of cadaver-ish and creepy. Looks good on yours though!
