Velobrico Workshop: Fuji Del Rey (1983) update

Thanks to Jim @ Bertin Classic Cycles for the pointers to velobase.com. What a fantastic resource for people doing some detective work on a bicycle restoration.

Here’s a list of most of the components on the Fuji. Exciting to see that most of these are Japanese made. Japanese bike, Japanese components (and no Shimano).
