Right if anyone wants a squizz at the old girl here she is.
I shipped this from the US as a parts bin or pub bike. I'm assuming a bit of a rarity in the UK? Decals and a few components were tatty, but really it only needed a quick strip down [although if you look carefully you'll see that I spent some care polishing the spoke protector
Definitely to good to break, so pub it is. [the Pub is at the top of the hill, and the fuji's long wheelbase makes for a suitably stable return journey]
Rather heavy, but rides with such a reassuring, comfortable lope that I've found myself using it more often than I thought I would.
