    one of the pics.

    Here is the after. Yes. It is the same frame! I added a Trek 700 series front fork to shorten the wheelbase by an inch. Wheels and bottom bracket are now sealed bearings. I have a 46/16 gear ratio with a flip flop hub. I have a friend that makes custom decals so I used the original font with a modern design. It's a powder coated blue with the white head tube and original RU badge. This whole project was about $175 bucks! I wanted a tall frame and I was lucky enough to find this Japanese built RU for 10 bucks. It's fast, solid and light.
