Today we’re treated to another OTSG First, a 1987 KHS John Howard Edition sent in by Firsttimer Rocky M. When I saw this one come in, I thought, “Cool, I didn’t know anyone themed a bike to Howard Johnsons.” Then I looked at it and read the name again and realized my mistake. But that got me to thinking, man, how cool would a Limited Edition HoJo Murray 10-Speed be!
This is my 1987 John Howard Edition KHS road bike purchased this past year from a friend for $80.00. Originally a 12 speed bike it has now been upgraded to an 18 speed thanks to a triple Sugino AT crankset, Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur and Suntour XT triple front derailleur. I am an avid Mtn. Biker but wanted to get in some road miles too and this pristine bike was just the ticket. I added an old skool Pletscher rear rack ‘circa 1962 and a new school Knog Pod rear rack bag. It has the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden. This bike was well cared for and should provide many years of riding pleasure.
