Fuji knew how to make good looking bikes. Nicely done.

Thanks for sharing your Fuji. That bike has the look of a complete package, and I dig the graphics for their period vibe. Nice sparkle to the blue paint, too.

A couple friendly suggestions. Might be time for a new chain. Those rust spots may not be worth the effort to remove since most new clean chains are relatively inexpensive. Also, be vigilant with that seat posts. Water can enter the seat tube when the flutes on the post are below the seat lug line, leading to corrosion and a stuck seat post. Make sure you have lots of grease in there, or, better yet, switch to a non-fluted post if you need to set it in that low position.

Ole!!! Not a lot of Suntour Ole out there, forgot Fuji used this.

Nice-looking machine!

In addition to gaucho777's post above, you could lower the front derailleur a few millimeters, getting that outer cage a little closer to the large chainring's teeth, to get a little quicker shifting. Not at all critical, should work fine as is, but just a couple/few mm is the usual spec.

Thank you for your response

Thank you for the kind words and response. I had this bike stored for almost 20 years. With no
work at all Right out of storage she rode smoother and faster than my 6 year old Cannondale 6. The chain is original. Has Japan stamped on it. Likely time to give the chain a good degreasing and lube. Beast of a bike.

Welcome to the Fuji fan club!

You don't see the Suntour Ole's everyday.
