Entering my 1971 Fuji Finest in “From the Frame Up”

This project started after I acquired a mystery frame from my friend Addison after he closed the Bicycle Repairium in Sacramento. There was a “mystery bike” thread on this where the BF hive mind helped me identify the frame as a June 1971 Fuji Finest.

This is a true from the frame up project after I stripped it down to bare metal and have been acquiring parts and building it up. Spent the last couple of weeks building wheels for it, painting the frame and applying period and model accurate water slide decals from Gus Salmon. Letting the decals cure for a few days and then it’s time for the 2k clear coat. Here is a sneak preview:

The mystery bike.

Matching head tube badge all the way from Thailand.

Fuji stamped Belt saddle

Some assembly required!

Primer done.

Wheels built!

The matching blue before decals.

Enough paint to match fenders!
