1983 Akisu MX
One of my most beautiful bikes :-)
This is my 1983 Akisu MX. Take a look at the last picture. I bought it as an Altai bike (I reached the conclusion that Altai was a German brand, but I don’t remember why) just because I loved the frame gusset. Once at home, I realised that the frame has chromoly tubing and, after looking a little into it, I found out that the frame was made by Akisu.
The bike was originally equiped with quite simple parts, so I decided that it deserved an upgrade!
