The 1986 Fuji Del Ray used a quad-butted VALite 1769 frame. Derailleurs were SunTour LePree, crankset was Sugino RT 42/52T (drilled to accept triple chainring), SunTour Winner 13/28T freewheel, Dia-Compe 6500N brakes (that may be a typo - more likely G500N), Ukai 27" rims laced to SunTour hubs. 24.2 lbs. $350 US MSL.

The DelRay was a great and well made Japanese bike. Superb quality and attention to detail. Easy to work on , standard British threading, great japanese quality parts. Tune up and clean up and you are on your way.
