1980 Nomura NR DG-014

"Nomura under the house"

 

DSC_5489.jpg

 

This is a very early Nomura with an interesting story! This frame, serial number 14, was found in severe disrepair under a Santa Barbara house in early 2011. The frame itself was originally acquired from Wade Nomura back in the 80's or 90's by the sellers father. I purchased this frame along with a length of original Nomura downtube from True Radius Bending. The seller and his brother (shout out to Diego & Joe A.) were nice enough to arrange delivery and pickup from Dave Gilkeson ("DG" in the serial # of most Nomuras), the original welder at Precision Welding. Working with Dave was a charm and he fixed the cracked downtube to original spec. He mentioned that this was repaired better than new because BITD he used to get paid by-the-frame so a lot of the welds were not his best work as they cranked them out of the shop. After I got the frame back from Dave, I contacted the guys at Custom Metal Finishing who originally did all the ball burnishing for SE racing in the 80's. They polished out the pits and ball burnished the frame to perfection while maintaining the detail in the welds and the original serial #. All I can say is that this baby shines like new and rides like a dream! A big thank-you is owed to everyone who helped me with advice, knowledge, and parts for this build... Joe & Diego A., Pat se666, Jon OLDSKOOLPK, Patrick TrulyOdd and yes, even resident Nomura expert Bomat. ;)

 

The frame as-found underneath the Santa Barbara house:

This bike looks totally amazing, very happy how it came out. I'm not sure how many gold Pro Stars are out there but I do know there is not a lot.......Hope you like it, as much as I enjoyed puting it together..... :CashMoney:

Here it is boys—the last of the Thrusters! I bought this frame set from a Thruster collector friend of mine earlier this year. He got it from overseas. I'm not sure the exact year, but would guess it to be a 1985. I dig the ovalized down tube and machined bottom bracket. There’s an old bike shop decal on the bars which is cool. Everything is either original finish or NOS as noted. The cranks were polished out, but are original chrome. The decals are reproduction from the original company/person who made them for Thruster BITD. They were even made on the same machines and the gentleman has since retired. No repro items other than that. My first build with colored tires :) It's pretty simple, but I'm pleased with how it turned out—I hope you like!

This is my old Sting frame and fork given back to me by my cousin 2007. I was looking for any old school bike to put together and ride. It took awhile to find the parts missing. It was purchased BITD as a frame/fork set, and I just threw everything from my previous bike on it that would fit. The parts selection is pretty close save a few items. The finish and stickers are original, just a little polish and clean up.

1980 Race Inc

 

Retaining original finishes, this Race Inc has been assembled with complimentary parts in used, but not too used, condition.

The frame is aluminum, anodized blue. The personality of it's life has been kept intact. Minor scuffs and blemishes can be found everywhere, but the luster and history of this bike has not been secreted away behind fresh paint.

I built this to represent a light-weight, sturdy bike typical of the era. All parts, to the best of my knowledge, were available around 1979-1981. I made sure the bike was clean enough when completed, but I did not over-do it. The hubs still have a light film of oil, grime and grease in places from BITD. I was not troubled by the light amount of dirt on the pedals. It's probably been there for decades.

 

Parts include:

 

Frame: 1980 Race Inc

Forks: Race Inc

Stem: Suntour? It came off a 1980 JMC

Bars: Race Inc

Grips: Oury

Cranks: Super Maxy

Pedals: KKT

Chain: HKK Smoker

Seat: Uni

Seat Clamp: Cycle Pro

Rims: Araya 7B

Hubs: Shimano Low Flange

Tires: Cycle Pro Snakebellies

Brakes: Dia Compe center pull calirs / Lever

Brake Pads: Tuff pads

This belongs to my son Robert, Im lucky he enjoys bikes. It lets us spend alot of time together. I gave him the bike when he turned 13 and we have been adding parts throughout the years. He knows what parts are on the bike and what year they were made. He installed some of the decals. The frame has been re- ballburnished everything else is original finish. My son is definitely proud of his bike. The only thing we want to change are the dropout savers.

be able to appreciate this like I do.
