My Zunow Build (Colored Porn Inside)

Well I know some of you have heard me talk about it, well here it is. I'm finally starting to build my dram Japanese bike. If you guys know me, you know I've owned a nice Nishiki Cervino (Full Campy Record) and sold it. I've owned a beatiful Sekai 5000 (Full Suntour Superbe) and sold it. I even owned a Panasonic Team Europe Bike (Full Campy Record) and sold that only because I wanted the ultimate Japanese Bike: A Zunow Z-1. Well here are a couple of pics to salivate on and a link of some more. I'll add pics with components as I build it.

Enjoy and I'll have more in the coming days.

that is some hott pron. But c'mon... without full body shots to set off the closeups it's just tasteless

Zunows are just plain sexy. I can't really think of any other Japanese love machines, apart from those by NJS builders and high end customs - Toei, Alps, Toyo, and the like. Maybe Miyata Pros or old Bridgestones, but those are more like the cute girls next door who have gone away to college, gotten all snobby and unattainable, and are too busy hanging out with their fixed gear whitebelt indie drummer boyfriends to give you the time of day, even though they're the same girls who hung out with you in your mom's basement when you were 12, eating doritos and pretending that they had no idea you were kind of totally in love with them.

Stupid hot Zunow.

Sorry to disappoint Cyclotoine but it's getting 90's Suntour Superbe Pro Acccushift Plus group complete with the hidden spring brakes and the 8 speed hubs that used the cassettes. My pockets weren't that deep. I'll have some body shots tomorrow.

I'm sure you pockets had to be deep enough to acquire that, I know you have been looking for parts for some time.

That is exactly what that frame should have. And I could take that Campy binder bolt off your hands just to make sure it's entirely a non-Italian build...

Since I have never even heard of a Zunow until today.....
I like! And the funky paint is outstanding. I really like the details on the BB shell.

You have to tell her "Call this number and leave this message AND there is a pair of shoes in it for you." I know this would work for my wife.

Ah, just depends on the woman.

I would respond better to 'and there's a new Zunow in it for you' .

Do I get to see this beauty when I come down to visit in a couple of weeks?

Last night I was thinking, "That doesn't look like much of a build..."

Looks better now, though.

The best thing about this bike is that, if you scratch it, you can use any old nail polish you like to touch up - and no one will be able to tell!!!
