Before you click on the link to see the complete set of 3Rensho photos with bb, dropouts. fork crown and fade paint job, let me first say that I have ridden a bunch of bikes, some famous, some revered, some belittled, some sleepers, and this one, with all its faults is a fine race bike. It's comfortable, predictable at 45 plus mph and handles well. It's horrible fade paint job makes it impossible to touch up. It's rear brake bridge has the air holes drilled at two different heights (that will take quite a bit of work to fix before painting). It's lugs are shamefull and the seat cluster actually has a little wave in the shoreline (visable from photo). I plan to paint an interesting and vibrant color, replace all the proper decals and correct everything above. I would appreciate any and all comments ... good and bad. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bike_stuff/
