Tange, and sometimes Ishiwata, spec'ed double butted seat tubes. I would expect a frame with a .8/.5/.8 double butted seat tube to take a 26.8mm seatpost. DB Ak, NZ

My guess it's a home built looking at the DOs and the 28.6 post reinforces that. Most old-school road tube sets were .9/.7 wall would give you a 28.6 post if you put the ST in upside-down. Also it doesn't look like anyone touched the windows on those lugs either. I've said it before and I'll say it again, just because it has lugs doesn't make it special. best, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.
