here is mine: looks good from here - up close the paint is a bit trashed: not sure s# or date- its built up modern as it came with sort of a hodgepodge.

heh. this is what happens when you start a show your bike that only like 5 people on the forum have: short thread. I would like to find an early one like you have: A guy in SF has one at a shop, but its a 56, and no matter what I tell myself, that is just too dang small for me. As I recall its blue just like yours-

Zunow Z-1 2439

I wanted to post this in case the new owner might recognize this frame. I sold this on eBay disclosing a crack in the seat cluster lug, and some time later I saw this bike on eBay without any mention of this damage while the crack was crudely painted over. I don't think the damage is a big deal but should keep an eye on it.

I do, and I wouldn't be very happy if I bought a frame to find out after the fact it was cracked.

Working on ridding the rust spots and touch up the paint job. want to leave the character of the bike alone but want it protected and a little nicer.

If that makes sense!

Zunow Hummingbirds 1989

Two more - designed by Zunow. The serial number of the first bike is M9P5020 which matches the format of Miki manufactured bike according to @T-Mar guide. The second one (M9P5009) was a single speed conversion and spray painted in gray by previous owner. I removed the gray paint, and contemplating on what to do.
