3rensho Super Record Export for the gf

So I was able to successfully get my gf into biking somehow and she was able to snag a 3rensho Super Record Export. Her favorite color is pink and since I know bike pride in ownership helps with motivating people for more rides, I agreed to build it up with all pink parts. I know it wont be for everybody but she loves it. The only thing I really dont like is the pink tires, I think the tires should be more function than form, but hey they work for her current riding skill at least.
Dont worry she has a set of clipless pedals and shoes, the flats are temporary.

Wow! Very Pretty bike. The shifters and the rear derailleur play nice together?

Nicely done! Getting that much pink to work together is not easy. Issi makes a very nice pink Keo-compatible pedal that might blend in.

Pink's not my color, either, but it seems to work well on that bike. Looks really nice.

Girlfriend a keeper - so is the bike. 3rensho and rose/pink - I own one and love it. I would go traditional and retro on the tires, saddle and bar wrap.
Funny thing on these small frames - the stem do not have much adjustment leeway up or down. Keep an eye on it.

That's what is great about friction shifters, infinite compatibility! I actually suggested dura ace SIS downtube shifters to match but she said she was fine with the campy friction it came with. Probably not original as you can guess.

Yes. The head tube is quite short, And the stem is at the max line. The bike is only 45cm seat post to bb lol.
