1989 Fuji Ace Restomod




Built up an old Fuji Ace with some modern components. She rides pretty nice, though the frame is a bit heavier than I like (5lbs 8 oz bare).

Nice looking resto. Modern components?

I have one of those frames - bought the bike new in 89. Retired it to a mag trainer in 92 when I bought my Pinarello, and then to a corner when I got a smart trainer. Want another (although only a 54cm)?

I dig the mounting bolts on the fork crown. Stock?

Curious about that myself. Mine has a sloped crown.
