    Kuwahara Aries circa 1984 - anyone know the seatpost diameter?

    Thanks for the info Huranura. Hmmm, in that case I'm thinking it's 26.4. I'm using an analogue dial vernier caliper mate.

    Is this a REAL Colnago???

    Hi all. I picked up this classic ride recently, and I’ve been trying to positively identify it since. It’s Campy dropouts hint at something half decent... I love to hear any insight you guys may have! Cheers
