    Need some Ideas

    Yeah I am working on my friends/neighbors Fuji Espree Road Bike S.S. Project 80s vintage. It got Fuji Val Lite tubing Nitto Bars and Stem, Sugino Crank. I need some ideas on front chainring..Bars...and stem. I am thinking about riser and not the classic look? Also putting a ITM Bianchi stem on it...maybe? The crucial thing is the crank! It was a ten speed....52 then 44. I really want off the 52 and leave the 44. Now should I cut the front chainring or grind it or something. See it is a bolt on...but the front isnt really...Thoughts and help! The bike below is about the same well the crank is anyways!

    I would go with some nice compact bullhorns and white tape. CX brake lever. White saddle. Get some nice white deep V's with white tires. Yum. I'm thinking work off the white and green of the frame and go with it. Oh and some nice white hubs with white spokes...wait that might be a little much.
