"Hello Fuji Otaku,
Here are some more pics of my recently built up series IV. I checked out your blog a bunch while trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this bike.
Your bikes are amazingly beautiful!
Thanks for your kind remarks. But I'd be quite happy were I able to achieve what you have with this beauty. You've pulled off the rather difficult trick of combining modern and classic parts in a very integrated fashion. Were I a bicycle manufacturer, I'd be taking a long, hard look at your work here and thinking about producing something that looked like this - it is really very well done.
Your work is one of the more novel and attractive custom Fujis to show up on these pages.
As an aside, recently I've been a little ambivalent about hammered fenders. I was starting to think that maybe the look was a little overdone or a bit gratuitous. But this bike has rekindled my interest in these to the point that I'm starting to think that a set could look pretty nice on my new Fuji America.
Thanks for sending these in!
