Re: 1983 Nomura Face Lift In Progress

Individually this is a nice frame and there's some nice parts too. 
I'm curious to know though, what is your criteria for the build?

Do the Titrons or Hutch. I know how rare those Profile pedals are but God they are ugly.....and yes, do black Ukai Speedlines.

If you can't afford one just keep your mouth shut.. Bad ass frame definitely not ugly. One Nomura frame is worth more than your entire collection. Hater;)

Re: 1983 Nomura Face Lift In Progress

Rare because only a low number were made?

If they were good, why weren't more made?

How many "cracked"...?

Just curious as to the rarity.

what constitutes good exactly?

they were uber light, a lot of people like the way they look, not many were made, many that were made broke. so now they are rare and collectable, at least to the group of people that are into them. personally, if i ever found one, i would sell it immediately and buy a bike that i actually care about. not into having a bike that might break if i ride it.
