    Real San Rensho?

    I would kill to get a San Rensho road bike in my size, and what do ya' know, here's one on eBay. However, not like other 3Renshos that I've seen, in pictures or IRL. The seat stays aren't pantographed, three instead of the usual two cable guides on the TT, and oddly small decals, amongst other things. What do you guys think?

    Are you concerned about the tiny downtube decal? I've seen that before on a 3Rensho road frame. The lugs appear to be the signature long point.

    sure looks like nice lugwork, from what I can see...might be one of the "budget" models like the "Athelete" which would still be a great ride. If it fits you and you like, why not take a chance?

    Yeah, if it stays low, I'm definitely going to chance it. I can even pick it up, after this weekend.

    Actually, you can get those decals on eBay for $20. Yellow Jersey sells them, too. I wasn't really worried that someone was trying to fake it, but that someone had slapped some 3Rensho stickers on a generic frame years ago, and now that frame was being sold at a 3Rensho.

    Damn, that thing is cute! Looks like very good lugwork to me... Odds are it's real.

    I think I found one exactly the same that's slightly bigger.
    And it's at a lower price too!

    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.
