Maybe I read it wrong, said "$100.oo is for just the frameset", when we say that here it usually means "just the frameset".

Yep, 1985 Team Fuji in Flamingo pink and black. That bike is a steal for $150.

I have a 1970's Fuji aluminum 12 speed. All
original except inner tube and handle bar wrap
which was put on a few years ago. Rides very
smooth. Most of decals are still intact. Asking
$150


Not 1970's and not aluminum.

Doubt it -- sounded like the seller just wanted his nicer, newer wheelset. Anywho the listing is gone with the wind! I hope there is a post about it here soon...

I have a partner that I pick parts with. He got the frame, wheels and some other bits. Weíll see if it fits.

He's a very big deal to his fans and from what I can see that is with good reason, I'm not very familiar at all but as with Merz and the PDX builders, many of them make some of the finest frames ever made and now you may have one.

Bill Boston: Per CR he's now retired from frame building but was and is quite expert on bicycle fit and measurement. His shop was in Swedesboro, New Jersey, and then moved to Wilmington, Delaware, so not anywhere near PDX or the PacNorWest. The few examples online show very clean workmanship, I'm sure you got a huge bargain for $180!

Campagnolo dropout is promising

Kinda funny seeing the unused derailleur braze-on; I'll have to ask about original components



Is it real and is it worth trying to bring back to its former glory? I asked if there was a tubing sticker but I don't see any on the frame.

I'd say that based on the Pinny BB, chromed frame beneath paint and the build details visible, it's definitely genuine, and with a quality tubeset; worth saving and refinishing in my book (not my size, though, and I already have a beautiful Mondia frame, refinished, to build up for my spouse).

thank you for the confirmation. I'm going to ask if he has the original components but I'm not holding my hopes too high.

Would the entire frame be chromed under the paint? Could i just strip the paint and clear coat the chrome? Not sure if that is sacrilege but I think it'd look pretty slick.

Chrome plating is a reasonably expensive process, so people would not routinely chrome plate an entire frame, unless it didn't cost any more to do so. The chromed bottom bracket is probably an "artifact" of having chromed the chainstays and rear dropouts. Even if the frame were fully chromed, it's most likely that the chrome underlying paint did not have the same surface (substrate) preparation that the exposed chrome areas did. The smooth gleam of chrome plating is a result not of the plating itself, really (or only), and depends on polishing the substrate before plating. So it's likely that the areas under paint would not have the same finish.
