Thats a rare find anwhere in the world nowadays. Give yourself a pat on the back for saving such a rare beast.
Appreciate your comment thanks. There is so much I could do to it (change parts etc), but having the original bike as it was when it was on the shop floor has massive appeal to me. There can't be many bikes that were used as well as this one, with all of the same parts as the brochure (bar the tyres).
However, as much as this bike was used, i'm really not sure it ever went off road? The original owner made some comments which made me think it's only ever been ridden as a commuter in Tokyo city? He bought it back to New Zealand and then never used it? Also, as far as the cleaning went, there was NO mud on the bike anywhere!!
Anyway, the tyres are definitely in need of change though (to make it 'look' better
!!) and I think a trip to the local dump sometime this weekend could be in order!!
