Another birthday, another bike frame. I found this on eBay in Japan. It cost less than my last trip to the sushi bar, so I thought it was a good deal. Other than some minor paint chips and a touch of surface rust, this one is very clean and, more importantly, free from the top tube dent stigmata. It has a cool gold foil cherry blossom decal on the seat tube which I think is awesome. I kind of wanted to get the Kashimax KX2A with the cherry blossom print to match, but that's just too insane. Components are mostly NJS, concessions made for personal preference or practicality. I converted the hubs to the 110mm 9mm & 8 mm slotted track standard.

Current Stage Info:
First completed form. I may change the wheels or add a brake... I'm not sure if this will be a track only bike (different wheels), or if I want to subject it to the mean streets (Add a brake).
