1986 Team Fuji

Just showing off my new catch a little. I became sick shortly after letting my 85 Team Fuji go a few years ago. When this one popped up on CL, even a late night adventure into a questionable part of town where the bike had to be extracted from an old moving van couldn't stop me. It's just a great example of why 80's Japanese road bikes get their own chapter.

That's very cool. I just looked at the catalog and there was also a "black famingo" color that year.

Very nice bike. I've had a few mid/higher end Fuji's though my hands but none the right size to keep. The biggest pull was a Roubaix with an 8 speed Tricolor group that was a touch to big for me. Hope you enjoy it

Here's an example of the Black Flamingo. I still have this bike boxed up in an air conditioned storage space. I'm working my way toward re-assembling it.

Thanks for the comments! Yeah, that Flamingo version seems to be a bit more rare. What fun bikes that look and ride great!
