Almost finished. I've been teaching my roommate about bikes "the hard way". He wanted to ditch his purple Schwinn CrissCross but move over as much of the parts as possible. A trip down to the co-op yielded this mediocre (but not purple) Gazelle frame (stamped dropouts, nice lugs and paint though). The Nitto bars caught his eye before I noticed what he had in his hand, best ten bucks paid ever. I gave him my other Nitto stem (formerly from the Fuji) which is beat up as hell, but really cool (any info?).
Anyways... after going through the associated struggles of dealing with a French-threaded/tube-sized bicycle to fit assorted Japanese parts of differing ages... we have a bike.

People who friended this bike Splined, campystamp, per.k
