1985 Kuwahara Supernova
First Built.. Tried to be Factory Correct..Hope you like it..This goes to my son.
This came to my hands from Cyprus in pretty bad condition with some rust on it. Kuwahara stamped brakebridge, K stamped Rear and front Dropouts. Fork stamped Tange 5. Handlebar Stamped Nitto.Frame and Fork was rechromed and many of the original part of the bike were refurbished. Bike had no wheels or tyres. No seat post, Saddle, Grips, pedals, Chain. Original Parts include Headset, Bottom Bracket, Crank, Chainring, Spider, Seat clamp, Stem and Handlebars, Brake Lever and Caliper. When i first found out it was a super Nova i decided to fix it as factory correct. At least for my first Built i tried. Love it. Special thanks to mikel206 for the help.
