1974 Fuji Racer, "the Ace", 61 cm

This was the first year they offered the Ace, the first Fuji equipped with Shimano components, first generation Dura Ace.

The bike came to me with a mix of mostly cheesier components (though perhaps the original front derailleur and bottom bracket cable guide). I have tracked down most of the correct original parts including brakes and levers, crank, hubs, shifters, Crane derailleur; but not the correct headset, rims, seat or seatpost.
The frame is not damaged in any way, but there are numerous scratches and some surface rust mainly on the top tube, down tube near the shifters, and top of the fork crown.

I'm trying to link in photos, but don't seem to have that down yet. Will try again later. Still trying to get the hang of the Flickr mobile app!

I was thinking $350 plus shipping, price determined by the part out value of the components.
