1981 Kuwahara KZ-1

Amazing survivor from Western Canada

Picked up this very cool KZ-1 today from the original owner. The guy bought it new from a bike store in British Columbia and has kept it ever since. I believe everything is OG except the DX Pedals, levers and the UNI seat.

The original owner held on to it all these years until he moved to Calgary, Alberta. Once the family came, he felt he needed to make a little room.
Enjoy.

Those gems are still out there.
Love those Kuwies.
I'd say the pedals and seat are still era correct.
