This beautiful wine-red classic racing bicycle made in Japan for international export, came to us via a high-profile bicycle recycling company. It was delivered to us in quite a state, the wheels unusable, the rear derailleur badly mangled. 

However, we saw lots of potential in this bicycle and worked determinedly over several weeks and months to restore it to its former glory. Nimble, light and mechanically A1, the Apollo II racer is a fine extent example of the 5 x 2 (10 speed) racer that was popular in the bicycle boom of the 1970s.
