[QUOTE=nlerner;6284788]I finished putting together the build for my newly acquired 1985 Fuji Touring Series III frameset plus some parts. I was really happy to be able to hang 700c wheels on this frame, which was originally spec'd for 27" wheels. The old-school Shimano cantis I'm using seem to contact the rims just fine. I'm using the original Sugino RT triple crankset, but pretty much everything else is a mod: Soma moustache bars and handlebar bag, Tekro levers, SunTour barcons, Shimano Deore RD and Exage FD, Sun 700c rims w/ Campy Tipo hubs, Planet Bike Cascadia fenders, Brooks Pro saddle and ITM post (thanks, Top!). Glad it finally stopped raining so I could take some pics!

Neil, nice job on your Fuji. I'm jealous! I hope to see you up here on the North Shore as soon as the weather gets consistently better.
