I like those Fuji bikes alot.  Looks like you have almost everything.  Enjoy! cool

I really like the Fuji's as well... I had this frame up for sale a few years ago FOR CHEAP and it didn't sell, so happy it didn't... I have had it sitting around in pieces for about a year now and I keep looking at the geometry of the frame with the looptail and it really is unique... I bought the seat for it about a year ago and decided I need to rebuild it, I took it apart and there it sat until yesterday when I decided it's time... big_smilebig_smilebig_smile  I probably won't get started until later tonight, I have to round up a headset, b,b. and a chain...

Re: My current build thread...

So, as things go, I have been making deals and trading parts like crazy the last couple of weeks and I have a bunch of projects happening right now... Just figured I'd share them here... I will try to remember to update this thread with progress, I forget sometimes... Anyway here's a bunch of stuff I'll be working on besides my calendar build-off bike...


First, a Kia Chrome Aero KMX that I got in a trade... I think I have everything rounded up fo this except a chain and brakes...

Re: My current build thread...

Re: My current build thread...

OK, lots of progress on the Kia Aero... I had to change the cranks, pedals, chainring and stem from the stuff I had gathered up for the build... The black cranks and chainring didn't look right, the pedals that I had originally picked out were plastic and I have decided to go with these alloy ones instead and the stem didn't fit into the steer tube all the way flush... Here's where we are so far...

I still need brakes and a chain for this... I have the PERFECT set of brakes, but I have to take them off of one of my Scramblers...

Re: My current build thread...

I just finished this build, a 2001 Motiv Plateau... I built it out of spare parts for one of my friend's kids... I bought the frame here on the museum back when I first discovered this FABULOUS place... I built it up back then, but soon parted it using the parts for other builds... The frame sat, then got moved to a different house where it sat for 3 years, then it got moved to my new house and has been sitting for the last year... My buddy's 2 oldest boys came to me asking me to work on their bikes a few weeks ago, so I said I would "help" them with their bike's in exchange for some much needed yard work... The 13 year old brought me his Subrosa Altus that needed to be COMPLETELY rebuilt, while the 11 year old brought me a Mongoose Mode 180 which uses a sub-par frame and runs a 9/25 gear set-up... The Subrosa is going to be a nice bike when finished, but there was no way I could make that Mongoose Mode 180 cool or even feel right about letting the little guy roll around on that P.O.S., so I dug out a few replacement frames for him to pick from and this is the one he wanted... I was able to use the seat, post, clamp, stem and forks off of his bike, while the wheels, brakes and bars came off of a donor Mongoose... After buying new grips, brake cable and pedals and doing a little custom work on a few parts and some custom decals, we have come up with this little gem... I will be giving it to him later today, I'm sure he'll LOVE IT!!!

Re: My current build thread...

Well I started working on the red '78 Scrambler and it's pretty much finished... I did steal the stem and bars off of my Fuji, so that's back to the waiting line... I will eventually change the stem and forks, but for now all she needs to be 100% complete is a set of grips... Here it is...
