FS. 3Rensho, Full Dura Ace AX, pantographed bits

Alright, time has come to let another 3Rensho free.


Pictures first, then details...

Frame measures:

Seat tube: 59cm center to center (60cm to top)
Top tube: 57.5cm center to center


This bike was purchased from BF member Vonduren a couple years back. Not sure where he acquired it but this bike had been displayed in a "famous" bike shop out here on the west coast. Can't recall the name at the moment.

Since acquiring the bike, I've sourced a proper Shimano AX bottle (the one pictured has been replaced with a nicer used one which includes the cap). I sourced the little blue cones that plug the allen heads on the brake calipers, the set screw for the seat post cradle and that is probably about it. I had sourced NOS brake hoods, an NOS Profil version of the saddle in the same color and NOS Dura Ace headset with the clear rubber "aero" cap, but those all have been sold and were never installed.

I have not ridden much at all unfortunately, but I know Vonruden gets out and rides quite frequently and I'm sure he put plenty of good miles on it.

The frame has been repainted by Cyclart sometime in the past, years ago (there is a decal present, not pictured). It is still in very fine shape, I feel the patina is just right. Decals used appear to be the track frame decals (slightly larger lettering). I've owned a factory painted frame in the same color and the match is darn near perfect. No rust, no dents or dings.

The components show signs of use for sure, they are in perfectly functional shape but do have scrapes and scars here and there. The stem has a fairly nice scratch to the anodizing unfortunately.

Tires are Vittoria Corsa tubulars with tons of life left. The headset is a Stronglight unit.


I'm asking $1700 net to me. Shipping via shipbikes.com, and I use the XShipper box (new and the best in the industry).

Unfortunately, if the bike doesn’t sell within a reasonable time I will part it out. I hate to do it as it has changed hands a few times as a complete bike with the pantographed bits, it would be a real shame to split everything up.

Man oh man.... first cup of coffee this morning, and this bike to look at. What could be better?

(Other than finding $1700 in change under my couch cushions....)

This is lovely.

One of the only bikes I regret selling, it’s a tad on the small side or I would buy it back. What a beauty.

Beautiful bike! Quite cheeky calling it a Super Record and equipping with Shimano.😎

Yes they offer it. Double walled cardboard box, comfortably fits a complete bike. Includes extra bits to protect wheels from poking through box, blocking dropouts, etc. Carrier would have to be incredibly negligent or intentional to damage a bike.

SUGOI!!!! [Tried to input that in actual Japanese, but got an error message saying: "1. Some of the characters in your post are not allowed" That is not fair.]

This bicycle is just about the coolest thing ever.

I can vouch. Received a bike form shnibop , packed in the X-shipper box.

The shipping box and packing was solid.

You could ship overseas ,with minimal risk of transit damage.

The box would be improved if it was unmarked though. Some “bike” labeling on the exterior let’s you know what is inside.
