Show Us Your Bikes Starting With F

Here's your chance to show us your bikes alphabetically!

It goes like this: every fortnight I'll start a new thread with a new letter in alphabetical order. Post your classic and vintage bikes that correspond to that letter, eg; C = Cinelli, Carlton, Ciocc. M = Mercian, Masi, Motobecane. And so on and so forth. The letter of the fortnight should correspond with the marque, not the model. For example; you could post your Tommasini Prestige in the T thread, but not in the P thread. If you're not sure, take a look at the word on your downtube. There's a grey area with people's names - Bruce Gordon, Claud Butler, etc., but I'll leave it up to the owners which thread is preferred. Make sense?

So let's see your Faggins, Fujis and Falcons!

Mid-80s Faggin TreTubi with Suntour Sprint components.

Since sold - too small (note setup)

I've had a few pass through and one I've held on too...and always will.

Fuji Opus III - I just can't see getting rid of this ever.





Fuji Club - passed on to another rider. How it looked when I sold it.






Fuji Team - Also how it looked after I worked on it and then passed it on.






Finally, the Fuji S12-s that I converted to 650b. My first conversion. Love how it turned out but I didn't ride it that much so I passed it on too.
