Ridley’s use to be one of my go to bike stores in the 90s. Nice to see such a well kept bike in Calgary.

Re: 1980 Kuwahara KZ-1

A time capsule right there. Buying a bike back then was a mind blower!


Newbie...
No front brakes, except for freestyle.
Adjust your seat and bars, so it looks like you actually ride.
Use cruiser bars on cruisers.
No laybacks on cruisers either, jeez.
