    Ben R.,
    That’s in remarkable condition for being a thirty-five plus year old bike.
    I love it as it sits…right down to the ol’ original saddle. I truly admire the older Japanese road/touring bikes.
    As far as components, that batch that is on there is not only quality but very durable and dependable.

    Beautiful bike! The color brings back fond memories of the Brady’s kitchen. I would not change a thing (except maybe a saddle up-grade) it looks fantastic! I gotta run, the Brady bunch is on.!

  • Bill

    Great color!

  • ihadwebbing

    very nice. is that the original cable routing?

    • Benjam Rubin

      Lord, no! I’m always in the mindset that your cables/housing can never be new enough.

      My favorite part is:

      Saddle: Padded

      • BeaterRezQ

        Padded Saddles are known for quality and comfort, Japanese/Taiwan?
        ( I wonder if they make a mattress type?)

    • BeaterRezQ

      Doc,

          Agreed, Sheldon Brown’s site is a must read for bike related info.

            All you cats that wants to learn ya about components, dates of manufacture, origin,etc, should check out http://velobase.com/.. This site can also help in determining the vintage of a rig based on componentry. I believe you will waste many hours there. I am an enabler.

          • Docsprocket

            THANKS LAVERACK
            THAT IS ANOTHER GREAT SOURCE

    Lovely bike but I’m biased as to the color as my ots is orange also, but you have the addded benefit of chrome forks. Guess I’m a little green with envy. =)

  • BeaterRezQ

    Doc,
    you wouldn’t have a catalog page for my 1986 Fuji Palisades–would ya?
    The bike was given to me and I was just wondering if all components are original to factory build. The bars and brake levers I have replaced, (not a big fan of drop bars) but as far as I know everything else is original.(+ tires and bar wrap)
    Also, with almost twice as much votes I think it’s safe to say that your 1986 Team Fuji will win OTSOM….congrats! I wonder if this is a OTSG first, two contenders for OTSOM–a 12 speed vs. a mountain bike? Anyways, good times and clean fun for all!
    BRQ……biking should be fun.”

      THANKS FOR THE VOTE
      I LOVE ALL THE CHROME ON THAT SWEET SWEET RIDE OF YOURS
      & AS PER YOUR REQUEST HERES YOUR PAGE ON THE PALISADE
      WITH THE DEALERS PRICE QUOTE ON THE MENS & THE WOMENS MODEL. ALMOST TIME TO FIRE UP THE BBQ 78 DEGREES TO DAY IN

      SO REMEMBER, RIDE HARD LIVE LONG & ENJOY LIFE

      • BeaterRezQ

        Doc,
        Thanks!
        Everything matches up to original minus the changes that I personally made. Also, I have a Nitto stem rather than a Young.
        It’s almost catalog page identical, and for free…..I’m a happy camper/biker.

        80 degrees out here in Tempe, Az…..I bbq and ride bikes nearly year round, ‘though summers can be brutal.

        • Trailerparkcyclist

          Barely made it to 80 degrees today here in Fla. Beater, I voted for your Chrome Wonder, but that Fuji of Doc’s…wow. That was something.

          Live Long, Pedal and Prosper!

          And Ben: your Creamcycle is a Dreamcycle!.
