You have a lot of work to do if you want to find all Italian njs parts. Like Unicanitor njs saddle

Haha I know. I think the Unicanitor NJS saddle is a wild dream. I've seen/heard of one ever so stuff like that I can only dream about. I'd settle with a nice 3R/Ariake number I think. Even chasing the 'regular' Campy/Cinelli stuff has taken me long enough and I'm not even there yet. All worth it though!

It is! One more thing I have never seen the c record njs heatset and seat post, do you thing they exist?

t_boda says:

Yeah they both exist. HS is rare as heck and only seen two for sale in the past 1.5yrs and missed them both.. I have a seatpost already in 27.2mm..
Just needing the HS and toe clips in med/large. Cinelli NJS bars would be nice but not top of the list atm..

It's 56cm square.
Takizawa San was quite a big lad and all his frames were around this size. He rode the same colour on them all aswell including his Makino ones which is quite interesting.
Here's an example of an absolute stormer!!!!
