This is a wonderful bike I picked up on Yahoo Auctions in Japan. Venus stopped production in 1982 but through the 1970s was one of the most sought after keirin frames, basically the generation before 3rensho, etc. This frame was made in July 1982 and sat in storage until it went to auction. It has an underpaint chrome job I discovered with the first few nicks to the paint. Beautiful ride, and I thought it better to build it up and ride than hang it on the wall.....

that stem is cool



yeah....that is a love/hate piece. I should post an updated photo of the Venus....currently sporting a silver NJS Dura-Ace post ;)


but the purple seat post just makes it look gimp

so so lovely

Araya Rims

hey man, how are those Araya Gold rims holding up to street riding? are they as fragile as everyone says they are?

I had no trouble with them

I had no trouble with them in Tokyo, but now that I am back in New Haven I haven't really been riding them out much. The streets here are horrid and I don't want to risk it/deal with having to ride nervous. They've got universal cheap health care AND beautiful streets....maybe I should go back....


I've never seen a Venus bike before. Really love the head tube badge and decals...elegant and lovely.

This bike is amazing! Love
