My early 70's Gloria (branded) bike...

I've seen this bike being ridden. I can't place you though.

I've not seen any other '87 Titanium Fuji's on this forum, in person or on the internets:

It's hard to find one of a kind Fuji's but there's this one:

A 1976 Fuji Professional in black that was spec'd especially by Fuji for the late Gene Ritvo, the "father" perhaps of Fuji America. Gene died last year and my good friend William bought his entire collection from his estate. They all passed thru my hands a few weeks ago .. the Professional (above), it's matched, same year, Professional Pursuit track, also in black (below).

In addition, a first year 1975 Pro with some of the prettiest lug work I've seen on a Fuji. The Super Record model that I mentioned above is unbuilt in a box along with a '85 Opus III frame, also never built.

Luckily, I got a chance to ride all of the built frames ..

There was the red Maserati I picked up back in May too. It's gone now too.

Not all of us are tired of looking at your beautiful Merckx - especially not me.

A titanium Fuji was posted on Denver CL a few days ago, but I didn't match up the year.

Beech333 something about that bikes looks oddly familiar....

well lets see, unique? hhmmmmm how about my RIGI? I forget the number but I know the importer only brought in around 1000 or so. I recall seeing an article in Bicycling Magazine in the early '90s about a guy who had like 40 of them so I would call this unique. especially since the design has not really been copied.

currently it is number 2 in the que for a makeover. I may put that seat on one of the Bianchis.

Tired of seeing it, how about something different then. 1988 was the only year that Fuji made the red/cream Design Series.

1975 Fuji Pro in Silver Mink

ohjonnybegoode 08-12-10 03:03 PM

Many foks have Paramounts, but not many have a 1982 Schwinn Paramount Elite...Richard Schwinn guesstimates 200-400 were produced in "82...(my apologies, people are probably tired of seeing this, but I couldn't resist chiming in...:)

kandyredcoi 08-12-10 03:18 PM

the black mixte and the classic fuji's are def super cool IMO

heres my rare and unique entry an old folder (actually its a break away, does not really fold) a member here had told me the make of the bike but i forgot, i have to look it up again later, i have since given it some TLC and a new paint job :)

HSean 08-12-10 03:25 PM

Here in canada you never see these around, I happen to own two, may be common for americans though lol.

And of course this Raleigh with a not so pretty seat. I've yet to see another one as old as mine and the same model, it's by far the fav bike I own right now.

ScottRyder 08-12-10 04:01 PM

Fun thread, great to see some again and others for the first time.

1973 Eisentraut/CID. Made for a shop in DC, fewer than thirty were made, according to the man. First generation dura ace on the frame, Campy drops/ends, mix of tubing.


Voyageur_guy 08-12-10 04:31 PM

I dont see many Daccordi's around.

due ruote 08-12-10 04:34 PM

Not as rare as most of those on the thread, but I don't see many later Team Champions around; mostly the earlier orange Champion Teams. Mine's a 1979.

Most rare bike of all--a 1976 M&L racing frame

dit 08-12-10 04:51 PM

Sorry, I just sold my early 70's Plantenga 531 db framed sports/touring bike. I sure hated to see it go. We spent a lot of time and miles together over the years.

frameteam2003 08-12-10 04:52 PM

Not Mine--a 1886 cross frame Ivel

frameteam2003 08-12-10 04:55 PM
