Kuwahara vs Autosol

I’m “meant” to be polishing the old Paino road bike’s parts and putting the Paino together but I spent a few hours cleaning up the Kuwahara (instead of going out clubbing on Friday night lol). She’s come up a treat!

The morning after.

Mixed up – Mongoose cranks, GT chainring, Sugino chainring bolts.

Banged up Tange headset.

Skyway forks could do with a blast and powdercoat.

I’ve also found some vintage Kuwahara gear on eBay and I’ve been shocked at how much everything goes for. The frame pads (shown on the bike below) went for over $160 on eBay last week. That’s nuts. I’m not doing a restore on this bike so I’m not going to bother with buying bling old school NOS parts.


Vintage BMX heaven.
