Sorry, the digital camera is on vacation, and even if it wasnt we are getting slammed w/ freezing rain and snow here in Denver. So there's no way I'm going out to the shed
(It just started thundering big-time as I type this)
Bottom head lug is stamped 8D0XX87, so I'm guessing it could be a good one from Osaka?
Bone-chilling rain is here. I was all set to use the sweet Cannondale MTB I posted a while back as a storm/daily city commuter, but yesterday I picked up a very attractive lugged Panasonic MC 2500 MTB that looks like it would be a pretty sweet city bike. I was so impressed with the lugwork that I didn't hesitate to grab it.
I cant find anything about this vintage MTB. Would anyone have a catalog or experience with one of these??
I'm kind of conflicted. I just got done prepping the panniers and fenders on the Cannondale, but suspect that the Panasonic might be equally as sweet. It will need minor tuning, nothing major. Exage components appear to be original.
If you could help me make a decision on which one to go with, I'd be greatful. I've never had a Panasonic.....
