Lugged steel. LBS is pretty impressed with the lugs. Say the frame is hand made.
Chrome fork crown
Derailleur cable guides welded above the bottom bracket.
Brake housing guides are above the top tube.
Seat tube seems to be about 26.4
Attached to the frame were the following:
Specialized 48/44/26 cranks.
Sugino bottom bracket
Remnants of a campy brake.
Suntour Mountech front Derailleur
The frame was badly spray painted, had 3 speed bars, suntour bar end shifters, and Weinmann brake levers and red foam grips.
Very long horzontal dropouts.
And the most interesting thing, two water bottle cage mounts, both on the downtube.
I imagine it's an old touring frame, but how old is the question. Seems to have a lot of tire clearance when I put 700c tires and rims on it. Perhaps was originally 27"?
Top tube is 58 and seat tube is 59. But the standover is an inch more than my 60cm Surly Crosscheck. So it has a really high bottom bracket.
The fact that the frame has a slightly bent derailleur hanger makes the detective in me believe that it somehow ended up in the hands of someone who didn't know much about bikes and was then discarded when it didn't shift right any more.
It's going to be a fixie with a paint scheme similar to the bike in my signature file. I'm just curious how old the frame really is.
