    10 Speed Panasonic

    Several months ago I bought a 10 speed Panasonic at goodwill for my girlfriend. Its a very decent bike, the paint is in really great shape, it looks like it was not ridden much in the last 30 years. It is pretty much stock except the north bars I put on it, somebody had put risers on, which she found really uncomfortable. She is wanting a new bike, something more comfortable, needless to say I get to inherit this bike. I'm kind of wondering what I should do with it. I'm torn between making it a fg/ss or building it up to be a somewhat slick authentic 70's 10 speed (which wouldn't take much cash). What do you think?
    Horse-free.

    build it up as 10 speed if it has braze on cable guides , single speed/fixed gear if it dosent.
    There are some things a man needs to believe in wether they're true or not;

    If it's anything above a DX-2000 keep it original.
