This is my free project bike I picked up in February, 2009. It's my first shot at really building/overhauling a bike. I call it my Mutt with the mix of parts on it. A solid errand bike to be sure.

People who friended this bike campystamp

Our bikes..

are damn near twins. hah


It is likely either Ishiwata or Tange chromoly steel. Probably single or double-butted. Often there's a tubing sticker somewhere. 80's Japanese frames from Nishiki, Miyata, and Panasonic (along with some others by Shogun or 3Rensho) are often quite well-made.

Please tell me you're getting those flaking, dry-rotted tires replaced, for safety's sake.


Thanks. The tires/rims have already been replaced. The rotted ones came with the bike and I hadn't put the new ones on. It's now got Specialized Touring 27 X 1" tires.
