From the top of its quilted saddle to the bottom of its flat tires, this Road Compe needs some special loving. I have shown you what Dale and Sam, at the Claremont Velo, did when a green Nishiki Road Compe came into their hands back in December 2010. I am looking forward to seeing how they crank this out. That is, unless some c & v fanatic snatches it up as a project of their own. So much potential in the right hands.

cranks and rings are in good shape

quilted saddle - too bad it is in poor shape
