My "new" bike! Sanwa 110 1980's road bike

Hi everyone. So as some of you know I was another one of those people who bought a new department store bike thinking it was going to be one less thing to not worry about but turned out I was drawn in by the pretty paint and cool shape and ended up needing new parts for it within days of purchase. So I decided to put some thought into it this time. I went on Craigslist, checked my local paper and then Ebay. I found a bike on Ebay that caught my eye. It is a 1980's Sanwa 110 road bike. I bid on the bike and won! I've took it out for a ride 2 times so far and it rides great but I can tell it needs some work before its really ready to ride. I paid $160 for it.

So, without further wait here are the pics! I added the kick stand to it because it didn't come with one. Oh, all original parts too. :-)

Looks good as a well preserved NOS bike. Not sure if you didn't pay too much.

Looks like a '70's bike with lots of steel parts.
Attractive frame.

Classic bike boom 10 speed. They will go forever. Won't speak to the price, but it looks like a good ride.

Was that a "they will last forever" or "they will always pop up forever" statement? :-)
