1980 Sanwa 250

More Views


This is a beautiful example of 1980's Japanese craftsmanship. The Tange Champion butted tubes are highlighted with gold paint where the tubes meet the lugs. It has a complete Shimano 600 Arabesque drivetrain. The Arabesque details on the components made it almost mandatory to spec a bike with a complete set to maintain the integrity of the look. The bike has been fitted with new Kevlar Panaracer 27" x 1 1/8 tires.


The bicycle is in good overall condition and free of bends, cracks and corrosion. The original black paint with gold trim still has a good luster to it with very few small marks and scratches to be found throughout the bicycle. The bicycle appears to be all original.

This bicycle has been tuned and fully overhauled right down to the re-greasing and packing of the bearings (hubs, bottom bracket, and headset) by a seasoned shop mechanic with many years of experience. The bicycle has also been test ridden and given a thorough 83 point inspection by the owner of our shop. The owner rides the bicycle in every gear checking steering, braking and shifting. After you receive this bicycle, minimal adjustments will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
