21” / 53cm frame of lightweight manganese-moly steel tubing, totally chromed under all the paint, made in Japan. Fully lugged with nice ornate lugwork, notice the unique staywork where they attach to the seat tube. Also has wheel position adjustment screws on the rear dropouts. This is a rare bird indeed and very lightweight. 27” x 1” made in Japan Carlisle tires, NEW, 0 miles. Alloy wheels and hubs, front is quick release. Suntour ARX alloy derailleurs with alloy stem shifters(I have tried to stay true to the original with the component group). Sugino alloy crankset. NEW nickel plated “Z” chain. Alloy SR stem holding Cannondale aluminum bars with NEW cork style wraps. DiaCompe alloy sidepull brakes and hooded (stamp milled)aero levers(all new brake pads). Alloy dual bolt adjustment seat post and comfy Vetta padded touring saddle made in Italy. Alloy pedals and toeclips(if you want them). Very smooth and accurate shifting bike, very fast, coasts forever. Bottom bracket is new with brand new grease. New cables and housing. No safety reflectors. Tuned and lubed, ready to ride home. What that means is that corrective action has been taken to address any mechanical issues (and some cosmetic ones) during a 14 point inspection, you don’t spend more money on repairs! Looks, runs and feels like new, because it is virtually new. Needs nothing but a rider.
