Hello George,

I hope I got a good deal on it. I'm betting that it's a 3Rensho bike, from the chrome dropouts which look like Campy to me. Also, it's hard to tell on the fork crown, but it looks like the forward-pointing crown of the 3Rensho builds. Pictures were not very revealing, but I'm betting on it being the real deal. If not, it's still a decent bike with good components.

Actually, it is a tad too small for me, so I'm hoping that there might be an equivalent frame out there in a 62cm size which would be swappable. But before I go there, I'll wait to see the bike in person.
