Picked up a Fujiespree




I picked up a Fijiespree for my 20 year old Son to use around town, looks pretty complete and original for the most part. I like how the QR is mounted on the Drive side.

After shots replaced the tires, adjusted the seat post and corrected the rear QR and just a little elbow grease on the paint and she's ready to hit the road,

Congrats on the bike. I've got an '85 Espree frame that I built up with Ultegra/105 7 speed components. Bike makes for a really capable commuter/all rounder. Around my neck of the woods vintage Fuji's continue to be found for really good deals. Trek and Speacialized have always been on the overpriced end, but lately it seems Miyata, Bridgestone, and anything sounding Italian have gotten stupid for asking prices. Even low end hi-ten frames are seeing asking prices pushing $300+.

I'm pretty pleased with it so far, for less than $100 including buying the bike for $60 then tires and tubes hopefully my son will get some good use out of it.

it was a decent bike, and i say was because i gave it to my son since he needed a bike at the time and he proceeded to lose it, anyway it was serviceable not much more than that.
