Looks sharp with what looks like the original Ukai black rims and Benotto tape!

Hard to say for the first ride. It might be pretty close to my 87 Ironman

Off topic a bit but what saddle bag is that? Do you think those loops on the bottom could hold a folded up extra tubular?

What's the over / under on blue vs. yellow tape on a Team?

My $0.02: Blue looks good. Yellow is rad. I hate the way Benotto tape feels. I don't have a blue & yellow Team Fuji. Blue & yellow Team Fujis are the business and I want one. This isn't my bike. All of the foregoing statements are equally sincere.

The blue tape on the Fuji would look killer on that Sequoia.

And vicey-versy.

Just a thought...
