Panasonic NJS Track

Originally belonged to an old pro, Olaf Ludwig, who raced for the Panasonic team decades ago (I think the frameset is from the early 90's, maybe 1991). Bought it from a former bike messenger who rode it day and night for his job, so it has seen some shit. In pretty good condition considering this.

Panasonic NJS Track [58cm C-C, Tange Prestige]

Fork/Headset:
Panasonic NJS Track // Shimano 600

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Sugino 75 NJS [165mm] // Sugino 75 NJS [109mm]

Pedals:
Shimano 105 PD-5700-C

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
48:15 // All City // Sugino 75 NJS // KMC Z510HX // Victoire lockring

Handlebars/Stem:
No name road drops // Nitto Jaguar NJS [110mm] // Fizik Superlight bartape

Saddle/Seatpost:
Selle Italia Flite // Kalloy Uno [ΓΈ26.8mm]

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Suntour Superbe Pro [32h] // DT Swiss spokes // H Plus Son TB14 // Continental GP4000SII [23mm]

White does look good indeed: https://i.imgur.com/yU9J6ca.png

But the paint is so perfectly setup for these colours that I couldn't resist.

but switched cuz of the old rule: sattle and bars need same colors.

old rules would ruin the flow of this. grateful you have a great eye past what we're trained to look at.
in your opinion, wouldn't Shamals look crisp on this? they're heavy, but curious how it be without the harshness of blackened components

Tijs says:

Yeah, the tape is alright.

Regarding Shamals: I don't think they really suit the style of this type of bike, especially since it's a Japanese NJS frame. On top of that they're hard to find and expensive, and they'd had to be clinchers. I think these wheels look nice and they spin well, so with that being said I will not change them. Though Shamal wheels are something else indeed.

The road drops finish it off nicely I think. Superb bike!

Funny thing; I actually don't really like the look. Probably will be replaced with some Nitto track drops!

I'm about to build a Level up and will be moving most parts from my Low over, including the road bars. I like the look on street builds, comfy too. In saying that, track drops will obviously be perfect on this also!

are you still gonna get some nitto drops for this?

Posted about 3 years ago

Tijs

Tijs says:

That's the plan, yes.

Preferably B125's, cause I'm afraid B123's might be too deep. And hopefully a Nitto S65 post to go along with it, in 26.8mm though.
