I’m expecting a NOS frame and forks this week :D.
It’s Japanese and from the early 90s.

Pity I sold these recently..

Yeah, me too! 8)

Did a search on here to find out Latido was a Japanese brand.

Very interesting!

Is that a soft tail with a pivot point behind the bottom bracket ?

And plus + 1 on liking this

What’s the history on the company ?

Cheers guys! I have no idea about the history of the company either, as there is hardly any information available on the web.

This hardtail frame was indeed offered on Marktplaats. I'm planning to build it up with Deore XT m730/2/5 parts.
It has quite interesting cable guides, with more or less integrated ferrules, and Shimano dropouts, just like the forks.
More details after the weekend when I've had the chance to look at it more carefully..!

:D

Some details, as promised :)

Cable guides..

Rear end..

With the typical peg on the driveside stay

Matching s/n on front and rear triangle..
Image
Image

And some coding on the forks steerer..

Now, all I need is a decent black 1" threaded headset, ideally Deore XT, to get this project started!
Already dug out bike's worth of black Deore XT cantilever brakes (br-m734) and a nice rd-m732.

Thanks for watching!
