1980 Shimano 4000

Owned since new

Shimano 4000 owned since Santa Claus delivered it new in the early 80’s when I first started out in BMX. When I started racing I soon found out that the bike was way too big for me so my dad purchased me a se ripper to race and the shimano was retired to the shed where it sat for the last 30 odd years. I took the bike out of the shed last year, unfortunately it was in a really sad state. So a restoration was started. Unfortunately original parts are scarce and the search will continue for parts. I still have all the old original parts and some I will restore but for now this is it.
