1983 Nishiki Seral Touring bike made from double butted Tange tubing 62cm

Salsa 46cm Bell Lap bars and Ritchey 1 1/8" threadless stem (+threadless/threaded adatper)

stock fork and stock Tange headset->soon to be a 1" threaded Cane Creek 100

Shimano RSX100 rear cassette hub laced 3x to Sun CR18 rims with 700 x 32 Panaracer Pasela TG tires

SRAM Rival 180mm compact crankset (50x34)

Chopped Brooks B17 and Thomson post

Time ATAC pedals and SRAM PC990 chain

Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters (9 speed), Dura Ace 10 speed front derailleur and older Shimano 105 rear

Tektro aero brake levers controlling Shimano LX cantis

50/34 front with a temporary 12-23 Dura Ace 9 speed cassette

I bought the bike stock for at the local Salvation Army. This is now its fourth drivetrain it has had: original, 8 speed STI, fixed gear, and now 9 speed bar end.

It is now setup and a long distance randonneuring bike. I plan to give a brevet or two a try and it will be done on this bike probably. I will be going to a wider cassette and maybe a longer cage rear derailleur, maybe new light (Cyo instead of the dual PB Blaze dynamo models) and finishing the details of a handlebar bag mounted to the front rack.

I have Seral frame in a 57cm. It is a very well made frame. I would love to take it a a long self-supported tour. It would do very well.

I love it. Truly inspiring.

I love it. Truly inspiring. I need a commuter myself. Something sexy about a bike that big (I'm 5'11")
Keep on truckin'
