Show us your Kuwahara

I don't think we have a 'Show us your Kuwahara' in the 'Show us your...' so I'm going to start one. Don't see too many of these in the UK...or am I wrong - anyway, here is my 1990 Kuwahara Leopard that I have recently rebuilt/restored..... There's a 91 Tiger hiding in the shed, waiting for some appropriate forks...

I think this has the longest stem I have ever ridden..! Plus quad-butted Ishiwata tubing - it's pretty light, although I haven't weighed it. Needs dailling in as I only finished it this morning but is a nice ride.

Ishiwata produced some amazing tubes. I have a Japanese 022 randonneur and it’s really comfortable and responsive.

Here is a link with more info on the tubing:
