    found a fuji

    hello all, i was doing some work on a rent house for my boss and found this frame behind the garage and my boss said i could have it. i've been wanting a new bike since i had to sell mine so i figure i can build this one up as i get the money. does anyone know what year it is and also it is 18" from the middle of the bottom bracket to the middle of the top tube so does anyone know what size it might be. i plan on painting it as well so i will post pics when i do that.
    thanks everyone

    to be honest with you, it looks like more work than is worth it.

    Not so bad, looks better than some Amsterdamer bikes I've built up.

    I'd strip the paint and inspect the frame. If it's fine, and you want to build it up, go for it. It looks good, only the finish is haggard. A downside is that you would be limited to rear V-brakes unless you had a mount Tig'd on (if that's even possible without comprimising strength).

    The frame is from 1993 to 1995 and was built in Fuji's own factory. It was one step below the Fuji Discovery, but both had biopace chainrings.

    thanks for the responses, i plan on stripping the paint and as long as i dont see any cracks or anything i will probably go ahead with it, try to do a really low budget build, if it looks like it will cost more than i think it is worth maybe i will paint it and hang it on my wall or something
