My friend is willing to give me a free Maruishi Competition STC. I have no knowledge about this brand and even if it is a good bike. I was going to make it into a little fixie towny .
I was wondering if it is a good company and good frame.
I've got a Maruishi catalog, and only one other model was higher than the STC Competition. Likely it is Tange or Ishiwata tubing even with that generic looking sticker. The catalog I have has that model with Tange #2 tubing. Per the decals that one looks mid-1980's.
Is that a Tange decal on the lower part of the seat tube?
Maruishi made some nice bikes. Looks like a good frame for a project.
