I’m not sure what to make of today’s selection sent in by Bill. His unridden 1979 Fuji Gran Tourer is amazing to see, but I have to wonder why he never rode it! Is he a shop owner and just happen to find this NOS Fuji lost in a stack of Madones? Foreseeing the future demise of Sun Tour, did he purchase two bikes of the same model and keep one for parts – only to find his Sun Tour components were so durable he never had to cut into his backup? Or did he buy it intending to ride it. Upon taking it home, he found it too small and just never got around to returning it to the store?
Either way, I’m sad he never rode it, but I’m glad it’s unridden.
