Hi guys and girls, I bought a maruishi road ace a few weeks ago in great shape, and since then I have been biking everywhere; to work, to class, to the beach, on rides for fun and photography opportunities. I think the last time I rode a bike was about 3 years ago before I went away to college. Anyways, about the same time I got the bike I started creeping on these forums, and I guess it is finally time to register.
I searched these forums for them before I bought it, and there isn't much info on them anywhere really. They are old Japanese road bikes, I believe mine to be from the 70s, here is a picture of it, the bars have since been re-taped and the brakes toed and pads replaced. The rest has been cleaned, my next steps are replacing the cranks/pedals and saddle 35572_1332724958167_1232310129_30914703_5675724_n..jpg
