Help Me Build My Nagasawa

so i just recently purchased a used nagasawa frame from ebay.i want to turn it into a formidable fixed-gear. i spent $1100 on the frame. I have about $1000 left to spend on the best rims, tires, tubing, and equipment that I can get for my $1000. for the handlebars I want bullhorn, which bullhorn would you guys recommend? what kind of wheelset and equipment would you get for $1000?

bars, RB-21's. I'd go dt swiss rr1.1 rims to pro-max's, suntour superbe pro cranks with campy BB, sugino mighty NJS seatpost, cinelli 1r vintage stem, Campy headset, and the rest is up to you but, I'd throw down on some toshi's too. The rims aren't the best but they keep your build around 1g and they are great rims. you can find the cranks online, the 1r is worth it but get it before they went to the plastic insert, and that seatpost is wondrous. but thats just my $0.02. you could do Deep V's to phil's and sugino 75's with a pearl stem and regal saddle but I think thats boring and tired! DO some leg work and get some more rare stuff and do this justice! BTW I want pics and updates!

you are building a $2100 bike and you dont know what parts to get...
hook yourself up with some araya tubies to DA 7600's, a decent nitto quill, a decent set of nitto horns, DA track cranks w/ DA chainring, a dura ace or campy seatpost, a saddle you find comfy and some clipless pedals, look keo's are nice, though I am riding SPD's at the moment and love em.

please tell me u didn't buy that red nagasawa frame...at 1100 + free shipping....

anyways...with my nagasawa build, if u are curious about numbers (prices are shipped)

blue sparkle frame = 800$
hkk chain vertex silver/black new = 35$
mint dura ace 7600 cranks + custom nuevos + kashimax sprint straps + 4 dura ace rings +mks clips = $215
90mm jag + 36cm b123aa new = $110
sp72 seatpost new = $90
kashimax tt protector new = $35
keirin tensioners new = $10
110mm sansin 36h hubs laced to saavedra turbo clinchers = $350
kashimax saddle white new = $60
big light = 20$

frame and crank package were purchased off yaj
other parts were bought off 3rd party in japan
wheelset was bought off friend from forums

this post is really long but in essence u should be able to get
a 36h njs hubset laced to ur choice deep V for 375ish
and for 625 u should be able to source our new cranks, rings, pedals, clips, straps, stems, bars, grips, saddle, and seatpost...

there are only a handful of trispokes that were painted from the factory, such as specialized (red or white), some "russian" trispokes..., SPINs, and zipps (rare to see)

and for many of them u'd need a timemachine (or maybe ebay) to try to get ur hands on them

The obvious answer would be a Koichi Nakano replica build. So, as above, Suntour Superbe Pro groupset, but with Araya ADX1s.

I think the ADX's would be the hardest thing to find of that group and I never see Superbe headsets =/

if you hate on people for building bikes and asking for help doing it, you probably didn't get enough love as a child.

and who are you to end a thread?

But bfssfg might know of some cool parts you didn't know about. Some of those might be just what you're looking for.

Wasn't this the kid who started a thread a few days ago asking about frames?
