it is a 55 or 56cm. my friends uncle made them in the eighties. he still has some touring frames and such i might get to start a bc and canadian bike museum with some friends. this bike is now on display in a restaurant downtown victoria. someone may have taken some pics and posted them on that fixed site??

I love the rear seat stay cluster, and especially the shape/curve of the fork.
