1988 Panasonic DX-4000

  • Back in 1985, the DX-4000 was the top model in the DX line up. By 1986
    through 1988, the DX-4000 was down a notch behind the DX-5000 and
    DX-6000 model in 1987. With that said, the 1988 DX-4000 is by no means a
    cheap bicycle. For 1988 the DX-6000 model was eliminated which made the
    DX-4000 number two in the DX lineup once again. It featured Tange 1
    tubing and a full Shimano 105 SC component group and nice Araya wheels.
    Sure, the paint scheme is a bit Miami Vice by today’s standards but
    retro is cool once again so they may be back en vogue somewhat. The ’88
    DX-4000 was likely the best mix of price, performance, and components
    available that year.
