Hi,
Your bike looks great. It was amazing and quite interesting.
Because I have a same bike tunturi r500 very old one and i am thinking to build. I got this one last year and thinking how to modify it and after joining this forum actually I first searched with Tunturi and here u are.
I am just planning what to change etc its costing quite much. Slowly will do that. I got this bike in almost working condition for free like 30 euros. New Tunturi R500 costs like 1499 euros, so if I could fix under 300-400 is the plan.
Btw, here is the picture how the new one looks like

I have some queries while thinking of building it, shall i shoot u??? If its ok in my next post.....

Br,
Suresh.

Another Tunturi-project....

Hello eucarya

You have a very clean and nice-looking Tunturi.

Tunturi was and still is better known in Finland / Europe for its quality made-every-day bicycles than racing bikes. The model you have might be the same that was called A Professional model in Scandinavia.

The Pro was started with an order from the Finnish Cross-Country Ski Union to improve
the summer training for the cc-skiers during the 80īs.
The frame was made in Turku using the japanise Ishiwata 025 -cromo-tubing together with Tange fork. The Frame is not the lightest one, but the one that was very durable during the summer-training period.

I have just finished my T.
The basic ride was a Tunturi Professional 1983
in titan-grey colour.

Parts:
Campa --> C-Record, Nuovo Record , Nuovo Valentino, Athene
Shim --> 600, Altus-SL,105, UG-6
Sakae ---> Laprade, Road Champion
Suntour Alpha-5000 NOS
ITT - 1A ( 70īs ! )
Selle San Marco Concor Supercorsa
Weinmann-clincher-rims with DT-spokes ( butted 2-1,8-2 )

Now it is nearly ready for next summer.....just add the tyres ( 2*Conti Ultra Race)

Juha

PS. uups, Just noticed that this is a SS-Fixed thread ... but if you donīt mind :-)

Interesting bike, for sure, but this really belongs in the Classic & Vintage Forum. Also, the OP hasn't even posted on bikeforums for nearly a year, and probably won't see your post anyway.

He bought the bike from me -- glad to see it turned into something nice. There must have been a bike shop that sold that brand in the Cleveland area at one point. Late last year I stumbled on a Tunturi mountain bike that is waiting to be fixed up sitting the basement. Same paint and decal colors. The bikes were made in Taiwan (typical late 80's).
