New guy Old bike.

Well my first post around here.
Just got this bike put together today.
-81' Fuji Gran Tourer SE
-SunTour Cyclone Mk 1 Shifters(NOS), and matching F&R Deraillues.
-Nitto Stem
-Sake Champion Randnner Bars
-SCR-5 Brake Levers
-Alexrims 700c Wheelset

I like it and am counting down the days till my doctor says I can ride again. Hope it will only be two more weeks

Welcome to the forum, too.

I also have an '81 Fuji (S12-S Ltd.).

Hope You're Riding Soon

Three vintage Fuji bikes here (that I ride regularly), plus a 1981 Special Tourer SE on the workstand right now for a friend, and a 1985 Sagres in the queue for refurb soon. Hoping that you're "cleared hot" to ride yours soonest. Phil G.

Thanks guys! Ya got my shoulder rebuilt after a dirt bike ran away with me on it, but things are on the mend. just weighed the bike came in a 24.6 lbs. Super excited on that. I was hoping for a sub 25 lb bike. My other being an 80's Schwinn world sport. The Fuji is A LOT lighter.

Looks like you've got a good combination of old and new going on there. I'll chime in with some of that Suntour love - I've got Mk II shifters/derailleurs on one of my favorites, and they work great (all the more so with a modern cassette). Scheming another Suntour-heavy build, too. Great stuff.

When I caught your username, prior to scrolling to the mention of a dirt bike incident, I was worried that the damage had been done in the pit...

Best for a swift recovery.

Really like your Fuji.
Hope the hurts from your crash are all mended soon & you are enjoying some great riding on it.

What bar tape is that?

Just a natural cork tape. Was hoping that it would be a little darker to match the seat but oh well.
