    That is a nice looking Fuji.I had an old Fuji “Gran-Tourer S.E.” It was a fantastic bike. I should have had hung-on to it. If I am ever fortunate enough to find another one that looks and feels as good, I will keep it. There is something very familiar about the brake-levers and cable routing on your Fuji. Hey Cameron are you seeing what I am seeing there? As Yogi Berra once said “It’s like deja vu all over again.”

    Good eye Hugh!:)

    You know what the problem is? Those are slip-on grips, and would require him to slip the cable housing between the grip and the bar. Not sure how tight those grips are, but I’d imagine it’s a bit of a task to do so.

    Your right, I guess his only other option would be to
    cut-off or remove the slip-on grips and tape the bars.
    Which I think at this point would be his best bet.
    When I saw the cables they reminded me of that bike I
    did a long time ago. If I remember right, you had a little fun with that one..lol
    Good luck with the race this weekend. I would like to go up and do the (23 mile?) geezer ride. But I`m going to a Red-Wings alumni benefit game this Saturday

    I wanted to remove the turkey levers and those were all that I had available at the time. The bike is now outfitted with Gran Compe of all things. $3 at a bike swap. I rather like the random parts that I have on it now.

    VERY nice, Matt. I just aquired a 74 that I’m rehabbing. Could you tell me what is written on the dropouts? Both front and rear on mine are chewed by clamp marks to read. Appreciate it!
