The legendary RB-1! One of my all time favorite vintage road bikes! This example has a complete Suntour GPX groupset, as many of them were fitting with these components when they were new. The frame is made with Ishiwata EX triple butted tubes. There are some paint chips here and there but no dents, bends, or cracks. The bottom bracket has also been serviced!

Overall, this bike is in good condition but shows sign of use. New brake and shift cables, bar tape, and a chain have been installed. The rims are missmatch - Mavic and Wolber (both laced to GPX hubs). The tires are old and are a little dry. The rubber fillers for the front brake bolts have also ran away but thats purely cosmetic. Both brake hoods also have some tears and the levers are pretty scratched up. Finally, when I was taking pics, I noticed that the handlebars have a slight bend in them. It looks like the drive side is bent in a little. Because of this, I'm including a Nitto bar that's the same clamp if whoever buys it wishes to swap it out. It's a rider, but it feels great!!
