    1984 61cm Bridgestone 600 w/ Suntour Cyclone II & more

    I hate having to do this, but as much as I absolutely love this bike, I don't ride it and could use the money for other projects. I loved cleaning it up and refurb'ing it.



    The mostly Cyclone II drivetrain on the bike is 100% original, down to the freewheel (Suntour). The only bit that is not Suntour is the crank, a 53/42 Sakae with a cool spider. Brake levers are Superbe, with original hoods in excellent condition.

    The changes I have made are:

    MKS Sylvan pedals and cages
    Sugino KC fluted/engraved seatpost
    Used original Turbo saddle (discoloring/use is consistent with the age/condition of the bike)
    New white cloth tape
    New "clear" housing all around
    New cables all around
    Sourced a 700c wheelset using the same rim as the original 27's (original Suntour brake calipers work great)... tires are period Miyata 700x20, with little wear
    Used Nitto Technomic 110 stem

    Condition:
    Stickers/paint are 7/10. It's been used, but decals and paint are in great shape for the year. There is some light surface rust around the BB shell, but nothing anywhere close to structural. I have given it a light wipe with steel wool and T9. Inside of the tubes are clean.

    I would like to get $375 for this, but will listen to reasonable offers.
