1982 Kuwahara E.T.

1982 Kuwahara E.T.

Hard to believe this was in a thrift store...

I picked up two 1982 Kuwahara E.T.'s recently from the same place. Both appear to be stock, but have some different components. I have wiped most of the dirt off so far, but no resotration at this point. I'm planning on keeping at least one for myself at this point. I think the black seat post on the other one is actually supposed to be on this one. The two bikes obviously lived together, as they had swapped front rims when I got them. They also had the same 80's check pads on the bars, one red, one black. These represent bikes 2 & 3 of my thrift shop pick ups and also & 2 & 3 of my collection. I don't imagine I'll ever score like this again, but you never know...

Re: 1982 Kuwahara E.T.

beautiful score, i would switch the seat posts though like you mentioned.


Looking for: Late 90s-00 GT Interceptor and Dyno VFR (square tube) Backtrail X2, X3, or X4 stock parts. (Big/small block stem*rounded*, small/big block pedals, seat clamp and sprockets) Nothing fancy it's going on a rider.
Send me a PM with the details and lets trade some parts guys! (or cash)

Daddy-O!

It was cool hanging out with you on Saturday at Gonzo's OS-bike show!  Your Kuwaharas are classic! I love both of them!

Take Care,

Mike

Re: 1982 Kuwahara E.T.

That's great that you found 2 of the Kuwahara ET bikes.  Did these come in other colors?  I don't remember and the few I've seen on the forum are all this red color.
