That is a great find!

Ricardo Schillaci

No clues, but congratulations!


Nice bike! Looks to be from the era of my youth (late 70's).
If so, the paint has held up very well!
No advice re Shimano 105, but that Campy equipment is so beautiful, can you convince your wife to keep it? Love the chainwheel. Is it the high end Nuovo Record stuff?


It is definitely the high end Nuovo Record stuff. I put speedplay pedals on it, and it seemed to weigh 3 pounds less than my wife's previous road bike. I thought the vintage was late 1980s, because of the aero brakes. In 1988 indexed shifting was new, with Shimano's 105 6 speed the first entries, and I think it was a few years before Campy had any indexed product. I bought a bike in 1988 that had aero brakes, and I thought they were new then.

Im seeking information on a Fuji model 441

It turns out that my wife likes it fine with the shift levers on the down tube. Its as good a bike as I thougth it was. Lucky me! Bob S.

I'd screw a 7-speed Hyperglide cluster on it, bung on some Campy 8-speed dual-control levers and rear derailleur, and a Campy dual-pivot front brake.


Two years later. I hope you kept it all together. None of that crazy 7 speed freewheel stuff.
