Zebrakenko Thunder 10 Speed

Hey, everyone

So even though this is our very first entry, this is definitely not the first bike we have rebuilt. I randomly decided on starting with this bike and figured it would be appropriate to give a bit of a back story on the brand and the bike.

Zebrakenko was a Japanese brand of mostly road bicycles introduced in America during the mid 70s. They were considered fairly dependable bikes. This particular Zebra wasn’t in bad condition at all. It was light, attractive, and road with ease. The group set was Sun Tour and was also original. We overhauled the it, gave it new pads, tires, tubes, cables and some cloth handlebar wrap.

We ended up selling it to a young man in college in the summer of 2011. Overall it was a nice find and easy project. It was just what the buyer wanted.
