Hi
well heres rest of pics
only thing with this bike I can not get used to the original pedals for some reason..so I have acquired a Schwinn Mirada and used those pedals which I like better...metal teeth grip my shoes better..
but have the nice originals for racing I assume..this bike is scary fast if you want to be a daredevil ..why I prefer my Schwinn more stable bike for in streets of big city where I live..but if I need to get somewhere fast this bike gets me there with less effort ...and my backup bike in case Schwinn needs service ..but Schwinn was 239.99 in 1986 this bike was 400.00 plus..and you can tell difference in riding both..
love both of them and great condition too ..
Thanks and enjoy

Very nice find. It's in excellent condition, too. I just don't seem to have that luck. I check the local Craig's List web site and it's either non-road bikes or high end stuff that is way more than I want to spend for my grandson's first road bike. I notice that both of your road bikes have the drop handles turned around so the brake levers are facing you. Don't you find that hard to control? Just wondering?

Hi
well the fuji came like that..was afraid tape would get ruined. Took some time but I like high visibility riding in streets here in traffic and this affords best sit-up position to check left right for passing ect..I prefer it now and did same with Schwinn when I got it..plus uphill its easy to steer and maintain a light touch for instant panic moves I have to deal with..great control and finger only pressure braking ..
make sure you view that Mirad in Schwinn post I found at second hand store..nice for the $$$
Thanks for reply
