Yes, looking forward too. I will picking it up on Saturday, but today I also had a bike collection day.
I picked up a very old Koga-Miyata FullPro-S
It is ueber-ueberrare. It is not featured in any catalogue and I also have never encountered a pic or writing on it, not to mention spotting one live. Untill today I only heard a rumour about its excistance ...BUT now I got this one myself
Besides it is rare, there is more. It is an aero-bike. That bare fact is not so spectacular, but consider it is from 1977 (!)
All cables run hidden inside the frame. All cables, so also the shift cables. The rear brake cable exits through a hole in the seatpost. Shifters are located on top the downtube. The seatstays the fastback type. Brake calliper mounting bolts are of the recessed type, but they do not look like the generic ones you find on every (modernish) bike. They look, as the seatbolt, special milled for this frame. All stainless.
Of course it is light
Equipment is full 1st gen Dura Ace, but with the aluminum Super Record headset. In an attempt to save weight maybe, as the aluminum Dura Ace EX came available only a couple of years later. No pics yet. Through the exitement I can't hold my camera steady.
