the ones we ride and sell sre from Mesicek and synove in the Czech Republic whom i visited 2 years ago. They are on the KoolStop International website. CR content? These have the same rim extrusion as the rigida-alu that was papular in the late 70's, early 80's, have a fixed gear, CroMoly butted and tapered seat/top/downtube, stretched leather Ideale/Brooks type saddle, and classic laquer.

If it were appropriate. I'd ride it at the Cirque, but it would be too distracting
