or anyone else out there know what it is? i was told its a handbuilt frame and was bought in Denmark for a lot of money,looking at the bits i am not so sure!
brakes are Acor/Pro-max chainset Dotek!
hubs are Suzue sealed tech rims are Rigida excel.
on the seattube is a sticker with "Sorens et hus med cykler
Nordre Fasnvej 154
Frederiksberg"
thinking that is the dealer who made/sold it?
so who can give me some ideas/history to the bike?
not had a chance to take it for a spin yet but will do at some time this week.

Def. not a handmade frame (which will be under BB or where it looks like some "filiing" has been done on the seattube) but def. a handbuilt bike. Let me know the frame number (Will start with W) and I'll be able to tell you who imported it to Denmark, and when.

This type of bike was very popular as an internally hubbed gear bike - so it's really nothing special. I suspect that the single speed is a later modification.

WMB means it was imported by Yamaha, who were also the importers of MBK. Loads of bike shops bought frames/"own brand" bikes from them.

P means it's from 1998.
