Broke some Dura Ace Raspberry today

Took out the Lotus for the first time. I purchased this frame from someone here about 2.5 years ago.. Built it up with a NOS Dura Ace EX AX mix group. Finally took it out for a ride! Love it! rides great..Also took out the basso, first time since rebuild.

Love the Dura-ace AX pedals... still the nicest since they put the ball of your foot closest to the axis

Really liking the Lotus...they had such tasteful, euro inspired designs. I'd definitely ride that proudly.

That is a pretty bike.

I think 3Rensho also had a color like that. A cultural type color and unique. Nice.

Aren't those pedals fun to put back together after grease and bearings? hahaha

Great-looking bike.
