1983 Fuji Supreme 12 speed is it campy or shimano?

Hi, I am looking to upgrade my wheelset, I hope to get a nice used set of Mavic ksyrium SL's.

Here is the link to my bike from classic fuji,

https://classicfuji.com/Supreme_1983_Page.htm

I do not know the difference between campy and shimano. I do not know what my Fuji is in stock setup. I just want some lighter wheels. Thanks

Your bike came stock with neither Campy or Shimano.

It came stock with Sun Tour components and aluminum Ukia rims on Sunshine hubs..

Thank you, Yes it it the Suntour 7. I am looking for wheels, I don't know what to order because it seems all wheels are either campy compatible or shimano/sram. Does changing the wheelset on my Fuji require me to change out the components?

Also I found a good deal on a carbon fork. Does anyone know if it is compatible. The info writeup I provided does not clarify the dimensions of its fork or headset.
Here is the fork I am referring to.

The bike has a 1 inch threaded headset. Your link is the email address so I can't tell if the fork you're interested in will work or not. I'm thinking not.

With suntour, if you don't keep the same gear cluster, you're looking at a cluster, derailleur, and shifters. If you're okay with that, Shimano parts tend to run cheaper in the US. Find a bike swap or co-op.

Can I keep the same cassette and just place it on the new wheelset? What do I need to know about my hub or?

I think you should leave it alone and ride it. Then work at finding a more upgradable bike for the upgrades you have planned.

Hey - You have a great Fuji - Don't replace the wheels unless you have to - Theres a pretty good set on the Harris site for about 140.00 - If its reduction in weight your after better try another frame set - I personally have always loved a FUJI ride regardless of its components - Their long wheel base give you a feeling of taking a stroll instead of a run...

Thank you replying. I plan to keep it stock. I just wish it shifted better. As of now I cannot reach my top or bottom gears in the back for some reason. When I pedal hard the gears shift themselves. I find myself only using the double up front. High and Low gear. Feeling time for an upgrade!

There are small screws on the derailleurs that adjust the amount of movement. I would bet the cable is a bit loose also.

with new wheels and a new carbon fork I think you should leave that Fuji alone and start looking for another bike that has what you want or buy a frame and build it.

you only see Campi or shimano caompaible wheels bcause suntour no longer makes bikes parts, atleast they are not used on bikes for the US market.

I am not sure if this was ask.... Why do you want new wheels? are your rims bent? are the hubs worn out? if your bike needs new wheels just get some off the shelf wheels from your local shop. then your freewheel will transfer and you may not have issues with a new cassette and old chain and chainwheels

harlequin, For a bike boom era bike that Fuji is already better equipped than most. Enjoy it for what it is and find another bike for 'upgrading'.
