1975 Fuji Special Tourer Part II

This bike started out as a total wreck but underneath the grime and broken components there was a pretty decent bike waiting to get back on the road. The heavy cotter pin cranks have been upgraded to a  3-piece crank with a sealed bottom bracket. The bars were flipped and chopped. The disgusting neoprene was stripped of the saddle and replaced with black suede. The steel rims were bent and uselessly heavy so they had to be recycled and were switched out with some much lighter aluminum 700c wheels. Aside from the frame, pretty much all that remains of the original bike is the saddle, seat post, nitto quill stem and the headset.
