CR List,

My desire to see this great frame go to someone who is an enthusiast of 3Rensho outweighs my desire for any profit on it. If you have interest in this frame, contact me and we will discuss a fair price. While this woul d be a really fun bike to ride, I promised my wife I wouldn't keep it too long, and the more parts I hang on it the more I'm getting crazy ideas o f keeping it. I am also locating a new front tire as the one currently on the bike has failed due to a cut in the side wall. I have posted new photo s on my wooljersey page showing this bike up against a 56ctt traditional ge ometry frame to better show the geometry / length / height of front headset / etc. Full details of the frame below from my original post that some ma y have missed during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

blue paint scheme matches the team colors of that era as well. Frame siz> e
is 56.5cm ctc seat tube, with a 59cm effective top tube. Frame has ver>

(also> in good condition). Also, I am including the 24" front wheel whic

I am asking $480 (or best reasonable offer) + shipping for the frameset,
