Jeff V has become a regular contributer to the Gallery, and he has done a nice job covering a fairly wide swath of Oldtenspeeddom. Here he is with pair of late 70s his and hers precision OTS: The first is a Panasonic Sport and the second is a Ladies’ Ross Gran Tour II.
Hi, Jeff V. again. I picked this Panasonic Sport 10 speed up recently. It was quite rusty, but I’ve cleaned up the chrome as best as possible and added new 27 inch gumwalls. Center pull brakes really grab well. Shimano derailleurs. Even has a Blackburn rack. Tall frame (23 inch seat tube). I added a matching “electric blue” bottle cage. Fun to ride! Hope you enjoy.
I picked this up a year ago thinking my teenage daughter would like it, but they’re not into OTS. The paint is extremely for this ’80s vintage Ross Gran Tour II bike. It has an Avocet saddle, and all I’ve done is spent a little bit of time polishing the chrome and aluminum, and I’ve added new gumwall 27 inch tires. Even the foam handlebar tubes are in excellent condition! Hope your viewers enjoy seeing this bike – it rides very smoothly too!
