  • 2014 seems to have bought a bit of a NJS resurgence and as there seem to be quite a few NJS builds appearing on the forum recently I thought it only fitting that there was a thread to show off your Nice Japanese Shit.

    From full NJS correct builds like Dick's Nagasawa to Fahrgestell's functional Samson this forum has had many different takes on the build and it would be cool to see them in the same place.

    I'll start it off with a few iterations of my NJSBeater.

  • Kamal's Bridgestone

    1 by 40 skid patches, on Flickr

  • Not completely finished yet due to money issues but its rolling.

  • my Giro

  • No longer with me s it was too small. I still like it though.

  • have you guys noticed that on more than half of njs builds the frame is clearly too small for the rider (if "a fistful of seatpost" is taken as a rule). I mean, realized that myself quite clearly. Classic bike fit is not easy when coming from sloping toptubes and hhsb shenanigance. More about standover height than reach/toptube.

  • my bridgestone, saddle and bars and a couple of other non njs parts

  • My beloved Makino. Slightly small, needs to go :(
    Will defenitly get new NJS frame soon, they are way too good...

  • My Makino

  • My old Nagasawa. Never got round to taking good pics, was great though.

  • My Samson.

    I really need to take some better photos.

  • My Samson that also deserves better photos:

    This was taken shortly after putting it together so the saddle and bar angles have been sorted. It's all NJS including spokes/spoke pattern with the exception of the tubs. I brought the f&f back from Japan about five years ago and built it up from parts I also got whilst there.

  • My Anchor Bridgestone

    And my former Vivalo special:

  • This is what I'm talking about. I'm loving the paintjobs on the Makinos.

  • Sold this couple weeks ago

  • One of my favourite forum bikes, what replaced it?

    this was my makino. Dont own the frame anymore. Was too small for me.

  • Mine looked like this a while ago, doesn't look like it now

  • My Vivalo NJS mock build from '09, too small for me but went to a good home.

  • My Samson:

  • My 3rensho

  • One of my favourite njs bikes ever, so well proportioned

  • Readers sundayride..

  • Thats really lovely, full NJS down to the tyres?
