Renovated Vintage Touring Bike: Panasonic Pro Touring

Here is my grocery getter and around town bike. I built this over the summer from a crusty $50 relic I found on Craigslist.

Vintage Touring Bike Restoration - Panasonic Pro Tour

Tange steel, well defined lugged construction, low-trail geometry, nice lines and plenty of bosses and mounts made this the ideal classic frame for renovation. Also, a list of salvageable parts included brakes, handlebars, cranks, derailleurs and a seatpost. What came out of it is a handsomely dressed road tourer.
