San Rensho For Sale
I have a San Rensho / Super Export that needs a home. I am not a hard-core cyclist, I bought it in 1988 when I was doing triathalons and stopped riding in 1990 when I moved on to raising a family. I would be happy to sell it to someone who really appreciates it.
The bike was bought in Boulder by a crit rider who moved to MA and worked in a bike shop. He sold it to me when he stopped riding. It got a dent in the top tube from one of his crashes. I rode the bike hard and the let it sit for years. My teenage son started to ride it and he was frequently stopped in the Northern Virginia area and complemented on his "classic ride". He then thought that he would fix it up so he disassembled the bike, sanded off the rust and carefully repainted it around the decals. Then he lost interest and it is now partially disassembled.
It has some classic 80's components like Campy Super Record, Mavic GP 4 wheels, Suntour brakes. I did put on an aluminum fork and Sakae handlebars.
I can tell you it is a real San Rensho since it has the decals, delicate tube work, panto on the seat stays, etc.
It is not in great shape, but certainly can be re-painted.
I will tell you that the bike was a beauty to ride.
I do not even know how to measure a frame, but let me know what to do and I can send measurements and photos. As I said, it deserves a home.
