Claud Butler Olympic Road

Hello every one. I enjoyed spending several hours last night searching for information on my bike. I found a lot of useful information. My bike started out as a brand new Nishiki Internation (late '70s) and I enjoyed riding it until I went over the handlebars! The frame was kinked in two places so I went to the local bike shop and saw the Claud Butler frame and had them transplant all the hardware from the Nishiki.


Thank you kindly,

gorsminuts

Hello gorsminuts, that's a shame about the Nishiki International. I have a 1983 International, and love that little bike! But....the Claud Butler is an upgrade.

Do you have photos of either?

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

I do not have any pictures of either one. The damaged one was sent to the dump. However, I have just bought some new tires and will take some pictures once I have cleaned it up. It has gotten a little grungy hanging in the garage.

Thanks for your interest,
