Introduction and help with Panasonic Frame
I'm just getting back into road cycling (Been away for about 10 years). I raced collegiate in my early twenties, USCF in my mid twenties then burned out when I got to Cat 3.
Anyway I just picked up a vintage (that sounds so funny) mid eighties Panasonic DX-3000 frame and from off EBay.
I'm in the process of restoring it and updating the components to modern Shimano Ultegra 9-speed. The frame is off at the powder coaters as we speak.
My first question is can anyone tell me what year this frame is from. (I remember the serial number was on the head tube and started "7D0?????" The sticker on the seat tube said "Tange 2 Double Butted" and the fork sticker said "Mangaloy Manganese Alloy Tubing 2001 Tange"
The second question is there anyone making/selling "Tange" and/or "Panasonic" bike decals? I searched the web and found everything but what I was looking for.
Thanks in advance.
