For all you youngsters out there, I present my '70s racing machine: a Mizutani Super Seraph:1317131813191320

This baby offer a fully chromed Ishiwata steel frame, a Cyclone rear derailleur, Shimano 600 shifters, old-style centerpull brakes with Koolstop pads, Mavic sealed hubs, Campy rims and a whole bunch of mismatched components throughout cycling history.

I think this quote from Bike Forum summarizes this nicely:
In the early 80's and older Japanese distributor "Mizutani" came to visit the Yeti factory when I worked there. We had a huge barrel filled with beverages for the guests as well as condiments etc. The dud swaggered over the the barrel, grabbed a pint of coffee-mate and chugged it like a football star.
:rolleyes:

Are those the same wheels that I sold you from before?
