Some pics. This could be made into a properly light and beautiful bike :)
wow with Ishiwata 017 tubing this bike is a proper lightweight.
It must have been built as a thoroughbred cyclocross racer.
Too tiny for me alas,
Cheers mate. Aye really is light and also beautifully made, really high quality wedding and nice touches with braze one, the brake mount styles etc. Of not the dropouts are Suntour so a very nice piece of kit.
Will pop it on the scales this weekend out of interest :)
How does the rear brake routing work at the rear ? Cant see a cable stop
Something like this:
only seems to be half of the story, there is cable stops at the front of the tube but none at the rear.
So I think that @Rod_Saetan is correct with that picture. Just double checked the frame and it doesn't look like there are nor were any stops at the rear for some reason. The seatpost in it was frlled through though so that's one way you could do it I guess ;)! T
have a bump
Agreed. Could easily be solved with a cable clip or tie wrap ;)
Thinking it’s probably some Japanese made frame which has been respirated and re branded. The tubing is too unusual/rare for European tube sets. Plus the dropouts kinda give it away too. Price bump too. Cheers. T
Final pre-ebay price drop. Cheers. T
