Chuck Schmidt has kindly reminded me that the list rules state that one mus t state a price when offering items. So, I am asking $380 + shipping for the frameset, wheel, BB, headset and shifters (right is pantographed 3Rensho), details below. If you still feel this price is above what the frameset is worth, I will consider offers, partial trades, etc. As I said, I am more interested in seeing this piece of 3Rensho history pres erved and the frame properly taken care of and built up than profiting from the flip. I will not be putting this frameset on ebay, it will hang ove r my desk and / or be built and rode till a new owner is found.
