If your'e not familiar, Bike Boom is a used bike shop in Davis square, on the border of Cambridge and Somerville , near Boston MA. where we specialize in restoring and refurbishing used and vintage bikes and offer professional bicycle repair services.
The Fuji Opus V was Fuji's top of the line chromoly bike in 1989. It has one of the finest frame they ever made made: Ishiwata Feather Si45 quad butted chromoly channeled tubing, it means the tubing had 4 different widths, the thickest near the lugs where most of the mechanical stress is and thinner and thinner as you get closer to the center of the tubes. Originally it came with Shimano dura ace componentry. 1989 Fuji Opus V catalog here. We bought it from a gentlemen who had it built for his wife from the frame up with early-mid nineties shimano RX100 and shimano 105 components. a few years back he added shimano Sora brifters (Iintegrated shifters and brake levers). We sold it to a nice girl looking to get into racing. Great little bike. More Fuji we refurbished and sold here
