Lugged, Japan-made chromoly frame and fork set. Condition is as shown in photos. Scrapes and scratches throughout. Has a gouge at the drive side chain stay. Internally, it is rust-free. All threads are good, derailleur hanger and dropouts are all aligned and it’s ready to build. Not pretty, but was built and used as a great riding ATB-era mountain bike. Super supple ride and geometry would be great for a commuter or drop bar gravel bike.

You can see this bike in action, as built, on our YouTube Channel:

Frame is 19” c-c, with a 22” top tube distance. Dropouts are 130/100mm. BB shell is 68mm BSA. Takes a 26.0mm seat post. Brake posts are positioned for cantilever brakes with 26” wheels front and rear. Comes as shown with original head set (recently overhauled and repacked with Phil Wood grease), and seat post q/r. Will also ship with the original yellow Shimano cable housings (not shown), in case you want them.
