I have a retired NJS Kiyo Miazawa frame with full Suntour track group and Suntour dropouts on the frame, almost all NJS with Nitto bars/stem. The racer who previously owned it has his name stamped and painted in Japanese charachters on the bottom bracket shell. He is called Sensei or Master in the links we found. I built it up for fun as a winter project. But now I can't decide what to do with it...
If I keep it, I will drill the fork to accept a front brake. But I keep seeing negative comments about doing this. It's an older bike and is heavy by todays standards so it won't be raced seriously again...(although I might give it another run at Marymoor Velodrome).
I am about $1200 into it.
My question is...Is it worth more undrilled to a collector, or drilled for a really fun rider?
