well at the risk of posting the same and only stored pics of my bikes...
1980 Mclean, I know some others here have Mcleans, but I have never seen another out-and-about:


I've seen a few older fuji "track" bikes around, and I've seen a few new fuji "feather" track bikes, but the only older ('76) fuji feather track I've seen anywhere is mine -


Also, I've seen plenty of internet raleigh track bikes, but again the only one I've seen around here is mine, 1979:

There is a guy in Wilmington NC that has an older (early 70s) Raleigh track, we will ride if I can ever get down there.

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 ..

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.

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...

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.
