A huge thank you to the Fuji fans out here. I spent weeks reading all of the posts on the 70s/80s Fujis as well as
of course ClassicFuji.com, fuji otaku., Scott Ryder and the list goes on. Time and again I would read about different rider's
love of the 70s + 80s Fujis. Also having been born in 1970 I actually remembered one of my neighbors
riding a Fuji. I searched many many spots garage sales, grandparents of friends and of course online. In the end I realized it was going to
be difficult to find one here in NYC. So I looked on craigslist in connecticut, new jersey etc. Well this past Sunday my search was concluded.
Took the train two hours north to purchase a Fuji Ace! Once back in the city I rode it from Grand Central back to Brooklyn oooooohhh man!
So amazing. As a teacher of furniture and sculpture making I really appreciate this bike. Thanks to all the great research available on the net
I can really really start appreciating this bike. Incredibly happy.
Its a Fuji Ace from the 1970s. Any help on further identifying would be greatly appreciated. What is the opinion on sourcing the original
parts missing (hubs? wheels?). As it is the bike rides amazing.
Rear deraileur says Dura Ace not Crane so Im guessing 1976+ Im out of my depth here.
