1983 Fuji Cruiser 26

1983 Fuji Cruiser - One year only model with BMX components

I acquired this in 2010 and slowly picked away at bringing it back to its original stock state. The most difficult to find were the decals; the seat tube and chain-guard were missing, and the 26" Mitsuboshi Silver Star Cruiser "Mits" tires in 2.125. I ended up recreating the seat-tube and chain-guard decals myself and made a lucky score of the tires when SE666 snatched up a Kos cruiser that had them on there. After much trial and error I found a chain-guard that almost fits perfect. I am yet to find a gold Sugino 40t chain-wheel which is the original component and the 42t you see on there is just a tad big for the chain-guard. But, it works.

Everything is original finish, minus the chain-guard which I painted the front face white per the original catalog photo and the seat-tube and chain-guard decal. Cranks where NOS as well as the pedals. Tires are in very good shape. I have only seen two of these cruisers in my years of hunting Fuji's, this one and the other black one on here. I have included the before (how I acquired the bike), the catalog photo and the after photos.
