Shimano 600

I just found this bike hanging in the rafters of my old Panasonic dealer. I couldn't believe it as it was almost an exact replacement of the one I had stolen back in 1988. The only difference is that this bike was custom built by the bike shop in 1987 using mostly Shimano 600 parts which were better than what the Team originally came with.

I bought it and brought it home for a good clean-up. It shines up as if it were virtually a new bike. The shop mechanic estimated the bike has seen maybe 500 miles on it since new. Crazy!

Very, very cool find! That's

Very, very cool find! That's incredible how it's basically a direct replacement and is in such pristine condition!
