Has anybody else every heard of these. I have got one, it is in a bit of a botched state with some old dura ace brakes from the 80's and chorus friction gearing.

I have never seen another one and anywhere.

cue - 50 people with Hirame road bikes :lol: :lol: :lol: .

I will try and find some photos of it and post them up.

I used to have one until it was pinched in the 80s. It was blue, think there was a better one in yellow that used ishiwata tubing.

I bought mine new from a car dealer in Hammersmith. It was cheaper than a 531 at the time.

Was a nice bike in its day. Didn't see many in the 80s.

Definately good quality, nice cable guides and details. Mine has the same tubing.

I will try and post a pic at some point.
