Just added photos of a very nice recently purchased Keirin track bike on the Wool Jersey site. Photos can be viewed at the following address:

http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/album205

All I could find out about this frame is from another owner, who wrote "they are produced by two young guys outside of Tokyo and that they are exclusively made for keirin racers. I don't know much about them other than that. I know they're pretty hard to come by in the US and that they bring a lot of money".

As the photos illustrate, it was built by a skillful builder, and in my opinion resembles Nagasawa track frames.

The bike was obviously raced, and bears a Japanese seattube sticker that I assume is from a Keirin race.
