Saburo - Nishiki Racing Master in Red
Are you hipster enough to appreciate a piece of history? If so, behold this classic Japanese racing bike with unique tall frame with nearly invisible welds, cool engraving and original stickers. After 36 years of duty, this veteran's paint has some dents and tiny rust spots, so he is looking for a pair of loving hands for well deserved retirement.
He comes with original vintage wheels, crank and pedals. Unfortunately, not all the parts resisted the tooth of time and Saburo had to undertake a full renovation procedure - he was disassembled to the last screw and put back together with lots of love and grease.
The whole drivetrain was upgraded with Shimano components and all consumables were installed new - cables, wires, brake pads, tires and bartape.
The result is a beautiful and smooth riding bike ready for many more years of service.
