Hello, New Here with My Collection

I just got pasted this addiction from a friend. I'm loving road bike and always trying to beat my destination time to places. Plus passing cars on the road is the funniest thing seeing the look on their face. I already have a little collection going in about 3 Month.

Heres my 1979 Fuji S12-S(my pride and joy) bought this on craigslist for $10 in this condition:



This how she is right now:



Rundown:
Nitto Fuji Drop Bars
Deda Navy Blue Tape
Stock Stem/Seat Tube
Suntour Powershift Downtubes
Dia-Compe Levels and Caliper Brakes
Suntour CompV Front/Seven VX Rear Derailleur
Ofmega Crank 52/42(Bianchi)
MKS Gr-9 Pedals and Cages
Suntour Winner 6 Speed Freewheel 13-18
SKS Race Blade Fenders
ADGA Leather Saddle(Peugeot)

Project 1983 Raleigh Wyoming Touring $30 Frame:
Under Construction


Maruishi dont know much about it:



My first Road Bike, it has been stripped for parts now, but thinking about restoring her too:



Thank For Looking, Comment if you like.

Nice looking herd. I'd restore the Peugeot over the Maruishi any day, but to each his own. Is that an Ideale saddle on the Peugeot? (And what model? later UO-8??)

good luck with the projects,
Joe

Ah, now I see it. The Peugeot's saddle is now on the Fuji.

I think I'll shut up now. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything.

cheers, Joe

No its a ADGA Saddle, this a 1975 Peugeot the low end version, the maruishi might be getting cannibalized for one of my other projects

I've had a couple Raleigh USA bikes come into my possession; I really like them. Nice little collection you've got going.

It's a start, by far 1985 Raleigh USA Prestige is my favorite, I love all the components it came with. I worked on one for a friend that had the front derailleur band broken, it was my first bike fix. After that I modeled my Fuji after it, but still would love to own one.

Welcome to the Bike Forums and nice start on collecting vintage bicycles. I have been collecting for some time now and decided to help people who are new to the interest by publishing a website. The site, MY "TEN SPEEDS" is intended to help new people come up to speed quickly, while avoiding costly mistakes that I made while learning.

I notice a difference in bicycle sizes in your collection. What size of bike do you ride?

I'm suppost to be fitted to a 52cm like the Raleigh and the Maruishi but ride a 58cm and tip toe. My Puegeot was my first bike and I didn't feel comfortable at first riding a bigger frame, but my last bike which is the Fuji is the same size. I actually like it it feels a lot more stable for some reason

Jay, welcome to C&V! I'm glad to see you're from Beantown, I'm up north on Cape Ann.

The S10-S/S12-S are wonderful bikes, they ride much better than they should. Built to last, here's a link to mine:

https://vintagefuji.posterous.com/1977-fuji-s10-s

Check out the rest of my Fuji blog, you'll see some oldies but goodies.

The photo you captioned, "What it looked like when I bought it on EBay for $75 and no shipping charges."

Turned out beautifully!

Scott, I like what you did your fuji it looks amazing, ill do that soon to mine. I just through all of my parts on just to get it on the road, my plans are to get a nice crank that suits the bike, new chain, new saddle looking for some nice leather, and I was thinking of going with some 700c wheels but my wheels are like new because who ever owned this Fuji didn't abuse it

Welcome fellow newbie collector. WARNING this is habit forming. For years I collected only Schwinns so as to avoid getting completely out of control. This past summer I fell off the wagon and have a Raleigh, a Cannondale and.....
Nice bikes!

Welcome to the Insanity!!! great starting point the Fuji looks great.

I do have a question about size.... I see taller bikes and short bikes? if the fuji is your size I agree put the parts back on the Peugeot it looks closer to the Fujis size.

Thanks you, yeah the fuji is too tall for me but I like the height, I wrote that on the earlier post. Everyone here has a good eye, I'm impressed.

Welcome. I met a guy in a bikestore yesterday who thought he was really something because he has 7 bikes; then I told him I have 50.

It's a serious illness.

I need some help though i dont know what to do to make this bike come to like, seems boring to me, i plan on changing the brake levels, handlebar tape, pedals, seat and derailleurs. I just dont know what color scheme to go with, because red well its red i dont want to do all red or white i want something different but flattering.
