Re: 1981 Nomura Racing

Here are some pics to confirm that black anno does indeed fade to a purple hue.  These are some Answer forks black anno that have faded over the last 10-15 yrs.  Notice the very similar colors to my nomura

Re: 1981 Nomura Racing

Johnny you definitely did her up right! That headset really makes it pop and that MCS looks better than the other one. I'm glad you got this - keep it forever.


I can't believe the way people mistreat bikes. It also amazes me how many people don't have any bikes and never ride them - poor miserable souls.

Re: 1981 Nomura Racing

Thanks for all the comments, this had to be one of my favorite builds.  Most of the parts I collected before I even knew this frame existed lol  I just knew I would find a nomura that would fit it all together.  I never thought this well though!!! cool
