Fuji, Mama!

I took the day off, today, and spent a little quality time out in the workshop, with a bike build. I had been waiting for parts, and they finally all arrived, this week.

I re-used the original crank, which was a bit grimy:


It took a bit of effort, but the crank came out fairly nice:

You should have seen the inside of the bottom bracket, before I cleaned it up. Thirty year old grease is an amazing substance.

Anyway, the bike finally came together, after a solid 8 hours of work.


It's a mid-80s Fuji Touring, built to order for a fellow who wanted a nice, classy, city bike. I think this will fit the bill.
