frame work

love the orange! and i love this era of nishiki. can you share a little bit of your experience grinding off the braze-ons, hangers, and fender mounts? it looks like you did an exceptional job.

frame work

It wasn’t as hard as you might think, just timely. First I would hack off most of the part I didn’t want with a cutting wheel, then I would grind the remaining bit nearly flush with a 6 inch grinder, then used a pneumatic metal sander to make everything flush. In total, I took off three brake cable guides, four water bottle cage mounts(first I plugged them), the rear derailleur cable stop on the chain stay, and the derailleur mount. Just that took me about 5 hours. I didn’t want to use any bondo or metal filler, so I had to do a clean job with an all metal finish. Sandable primer was a must for me and worked well to smooth it out completely. The bike was given to me free as a 10 speed, so I had to work with it, and it is a peeve of mine to see unused shit like cage mounts on a fixie.
