Sadly this came up a bit big for me and I have many, many other projects to deal with! Full bike in great nick, not top end but a turn-key classic nicely built in Japan for the UK market. Almost full original spec but with period Reydel saddle, newer gumwall tyres and S.R pedals, new brake blocks fitted and whilst the cables, tyres, chain and freewheel aren't new there is plenty of life in them and they're in good nick.


Considering the age it's in great condition with some surface rust spots to the brake cable guides on the top tube and a few other marks to show it's had some use, it also sustained a scratch on the under side of the downtube in transit pictured below which is hard to see normally.


Full spec:
