OK @juvela Roger. You were worried because it had been days since I posted a bike until yesterday, when I posted the Centurion Turbo. So how about now...less than 24 hours!!

I just got home with an all original, close to mint, Panasonic DX-4000 that was pampered its whole life. The attached first 4 photos are what the owner had posted, and because it's raining here right now I can't take my own photos. When the weather clears, I'll take pictures and tell what a wonderful guy I purchased the bike from. Until then...:p

Well, here I have an all original, 1 owner, house kept DX-4000...in MY SIZE frame!

The owner lives about 50-60 miles East from my house, but said he had work that was bringing him about 3 miles from my house...so he brought it with him to save me a trip. What a guy!! And he was very happy knowing it was going to someone who would appreciate it the way he did.

Originally he had it listed as a 1985 model (which is when he remembers buying it new), but the serial number and catalog pages I found make it a 1981 model. If I'm wrong, please correct me!

Anyway, a Super nice guy who gave me a Super nice price...$100...:sunglasses:

I notice that the head badge has a "2061" stamp on it. I wonder if this is like the Schwinn head badge stamps, the 206th day of 1981?

I was thinking the same thing when I saw that. It does make sense, though, to do it like that.

Your industry paid off just right this time. ;)

You completed Señor ACER-MEX exactly in time so as to be able to get immediately to work on the Shogunate & Matsu%$#ta San.

Thought whilst shaving - "Nostro Don Federico is just about ready for yet another sacred mountain."

All done...with the exception of a few spots I see I missed...!~@#$%^&*...

I did change out the water bottle holder to a chrome one that looks nicer with all the polished alloy and chrome on the bike. Not bad for a 38 year old bike!! :p

BTW...look at the 12-speed decal on the top tube near the saddle. Paint had chipped off, revealing a chrome frame beneath, in case anyone didn't know this.

The bike looks beautiful. That is a color I have been seeking for a while and you have done a great job detailing the bike. Tim
