3Rensho information wanteddavet
Aug 20, 2003 8:25 AM
I recently bought a 3Rensho and I'm looking for info about the bikes. I've seen all the info on the Yellow Jersey and Classic Rendezvous sites, and I'm hoping that someone could recommend others. Even anecdotal information would be appreciated.

The interesting thing about this 3Rensho is that it is complete with a Shimano Dura Ace AX groupset (even the hubs)from the early '80's. The AX stem, seat post and crankset have "3Rensho" pantographed on them. This leads me to believe the bike was originally purchased with this componentry. The AX stuff was only made in '82 and '83 (I believe) so that's my estimation of the age of the bike.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I dug around on the web a couple of years ago for 3Rensho info. The sites you listed are it.

so I can't really respond in detail. Spent two years with the factory club in Japan (86-88). Send me an e-mail at I can answer many of your questions.
