I was out looking for bikes yesterday. Already snapped up a free 1973 Concord Aztec in really bad but salvageable condition. I was on my way to buy a 1986 Schwinn World for 50 bucks. I get to the place and the world is in great shape, looks almost new. I know the world is not an amazing bike but I can resell it for 150-175. So im out riding the world, test riding it. And these two kids riding come up to me and say " Hey Im giving away one of those". I said " a road bike?". They say...."yea". So I follow them to the house and the kid brings out a semi-rough but neat Sekine. I give him 10 dollars because I figured it was good karma.
The Sekine has ornamental lugs, a Champion Butted Cro-mo frame, forged Shimano drops, chromed chain, and fork. It was missing the seat and one of the spokes needs to be replaced, but after a little cleanup its looking really nice. There dont seem to be a lot of these bikes in the states. It weighs 22-23 lbs, its super light. Its the SHS270 2nd or 3rd in their lineup, a really great bike. Here are some pics of the progress so far...
