1998 FUJI TEAM....I just bought it!......

I picked this up last night from its original owner. I haven't even had time to take photos, so I've attached the one from BIKEPEDIA (where all the specs came from, below) to show what it basically looks like.

With the exception of new tires that he put on not long ago, it's 100% original. Sure, it has some MINOR scratches, but that's to be expected. It's the Violet color with gold Fuji decals. The rims are a yellow gold (not use to that yet) but match the outline color of the decals.
I'll replace the saddle with a Specialized Body Geometry like I have on all of my other road bikes. Can't wait till tonight to begin the tear down and detailing!

According to it's original owner, he paid $1,100 for it (check out the retail back then). I managed to get it for $180. A super deal or what!!
