I recently acquired this 1987 Hujsak framed bike from its original owner who was giving up riding due to ongoing physical problems. It still had its original metallic green paint job which was showing the usual usage dings, chips, and scratches. It was also suffering from a lot of superficial sweat damage to the finish. However, the frame was sound and in very good condition. I took the frame and fork to David Cheakas, a local frame builder and bike painter, for the new paint job.

This is a classic high-quality 1980's American road frame and is an utter joy to ride. For those who aren't familiar with him, Skip Hujsak is a long-time frame builder based in the Texas hill country.

The original owner had recently rebuilt the bike with 9 speed Dura Ace components, which for the most part I kept. I replaced the 39/53 Dura Ace crankset with a 36/48 compact FSA carbon crankset. I also put on my own wider 3T handlebar and traditional Dura Ace/Open Pro wheelset. I mostly ride intermediate-speed club rides or solo in the rural areas around Dallas and Fort Worth.

What I built up:
- 1987 Hujsak lugged steel frame and fork, Columbus SLX tubing
- FSA carbon 172.5 mm crank as a double (36/48 chainrings)
- 9-speed 11-23 Dura Ace cassette
- Dura Ace 9-speed STI shift/brake levers
- Dura Ace 7700 front and rear derailers
- 7700 Dura Ace hubs on silver Mavic Open Pro rims, 32 hole front, 36 hole rear, DT Revolution spokes
- Michelin Pro Race tires
- Dura Ace headset, ITM stem, 3T handlebars, Cinelli black gel bar tape
- Dura Ace seatpost and Selle San Marco Aero saddle
- Speedplay Frog pedals
- Nitto bottle cages
