They look like cable guide ferules are some of your cable guides/bosses open?

And the black thing looks like a cable guide

I think the paint looks great! Crazily good

Threaded hole? Just one eh? No idea! Draining off excess awesomeness perhaps?

The land of the rising sun made many nice bikes, but I think most never reached British soil.

Very nice Kuwahara, Nader. As Japanese bike enthousiast I will follow this thread closely.

The threaded hole could be for a portage strap. I have one on my Ibis. Is it towards the seat tube end?

The threaded hole is for a portage strap for sure. Common feature on Kuwahara frames.

"portage strap" ..oh yes, that's right (I've learned something :wink:)

Kuwahara is already full of details! integrated seat clamp, the special cable routing, or this (what is it? :?)

..no idea how I should build it? I can't find any data in any catalog for this Kuwahara. It's from the beginning of 92 and the first aluminum frame by Kuwahara.

..well as always, the color of Mag does not quite fit.

[quote="Nader"] this (what is it? :?)[/quote]

Seems to be o holder for a bicycle air pump. Old Ukraina bikes had it welded to the frame, compare with this photo: http://rower-blog.net/wp-content/upload ... gorowa.jpg
