If you put it up for rBoTM you'll need these tweaks to satisfy the pedants (like me):

1. Tip the 'bars up slightly.
2. Match the saddle colour to the 'bar tape.
3. Or change the 'bar tape to black or white with matching saddle.
4. Put some pedals on with white toe straps.

But seriously it is a cracking bike - well done.

Rolls or Turbo? Tough choice.

Mark.

Just look for the nomination thread in the Retro Road section at the start of each month. Entries usually close mid month.

NO NO NO!!!

when did you ever see a panasonic bike with OR10s?!! :? unless paul curran ever rode one up some hiedous national hill climb route in the 80s?!! :shock:

GP4, GL330 or SSC are the only way to go!!
