1234567891011

bicycle frame material: steel
bicycle type: road
frame size: 58cm
wheel size: 27 in

Beautiful 70's Azuki Gran-Sport with a nice lug frame made in Japan. Azuki is a sister bike to Nishiki both were manufactured by Kawamura Cycle in Kobe Japan and distributed in the US by West Coast Cycle, This bike has undergone a painstaking restoration. The bike was placed on the bike stand and totally striped down to the bare frame and front forks. I took the frame and forks had them media blasted and powder coated ($150 expense)- matching the powder coat finish to the original blue paint. When replacing the head badge it was riveted back on like it was done in the factory. The bike has Araya alloy wheels with quick release hubs made in Japan. The bike sports a nice Maxy alloy crank with Suntour shifters and rear derailleur. All parts were either meticulously cleaned or replaced. The bike has brand new tires, tubes, rim strips, seat, cables, casings, handlebar tape, and of course new decals. The crank bearings are new and packed in bicycle grease. After the bike was nearing completion i took it to Bicycle Face for some finishing touches. They installed new leather handlebar wrap and inflated the tires to the proper psi. Bicycle face also professionally trued the wheels. Alot of time and money have been spent on this restoration. So if you are looking for a beautiful vintage road bike this is it - you will be hard pressed to find another one this nice, text is the best way to reach me. Asking $530 Thanks show contact info
