Today’s OTS is this 1981 Fuji Sports 12.Â It’s like a Fuji Sports 10 — only much more complicated for those two obvious reasons.Â This gem belongs to OTSG veteran, Bill.Â I have praised Bill in the past for getting his whole family in on the OTS action, and it should be noted that he has sponsored both his son’s and his daughter’s entry into this culture where everything is 10 times better. Â Â I received this first set of pictures about two weeks ago, and only five days later I recieved the lower “after” shots.Â Talk about a quick turn around!Â For me: Five days into my projects, I’m still trying to clean up the garage so I can finish work on the six other preceding projects and then start on said project.
I just keep finding these diamonds in the rough. I found this one on eBay, put a low bid in, and won it. The seller lived 15 minutes from my house. I like the burgundy color and love the Gothic font used on the Sports 12 decals. She wears her Hi-Ten steel frame and Dia Compe and Sun Tour equipment with pride. New tubes, tires, pads, and bar tape await her.
Look what Bill can whip up in less than a week!
Here are some pictures of my Fuji Sports 12 after I cleaned and tuned her up. She now has new tubes, tires, rim strips, brake pads, and bar tape. Plus quite a bit of elbow grease. Plus I put the seat post and the stem back under the safe limit lines.
Thanks Again Bill
