More Info:
Been researching these frames and this in the only one I've seen where the top tube meet below the seatstays. Also found it odd that it has no bottle cage mounts. Pretty much used all the parts from my ZR-1000 for the build.

Thanks! I got the idea from a Yamaguchi road/track bike I saw online. I actually got some NOS Dura-Ace downtube shifters that I will have on before summer to clean it up a bit. Will post pictures as soon as its all done.

Awesome. Been looking out a KHS Aero Comp, no dice. I'd get bars that have internal cable routing to have a cleaner look, maybe some Profile Airwings. But this looks rad.

Thank you! the cable in question is actually the shifter cable and due to how its mounted in this photo I wouldnt be able to route it internally. However, I did just get a NOS Dura-Ace downtube shifter (and headset) that should take care of it! cheers

I finally found one of these, but its the regular version (regular sized ht, traditional st/tt/stays juncture). If this was my size I'd poach this. So damn cool.

Here's a pick of the frame: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5516/1221...
it's built up, an 8-speed DA 74XX group, plus various Thomson/Dimension/Nitto bits thrown on for good measure. Still need to take proper pics of it.

...but the owner had disc brake tabs welded on.

Really cool bike. It seems to have been a TT bike. I'm not really a fan of that gear shifter you're running, but still a cool setup.
An alternative can be a bar end shifter on one side, and a brake lever doublizer, so you can run both brakes with one lever. Tempra Cycles makes a really well engineered one.

That Tempra lever is pretty rad, looks like Id have to modify my Nitto bars to accept internal routing though? Not sure if thats something Id be down to do. The current shifter setup is super comfortable and smooth though. My only qualm is the shop I go to left the cable a little long, so it doesnt look as clean as it did on my GT. I'm gonna shorten it up when I get a chance. Appreciate the kind words though.

I'm not positive, but I want to say 94/95. The later ones had internal cable routing.
