Well, trade for actually but long story short I got a janky but apparently nice old frame I intend to build but I am kinda new to older bikes so, at the recommendation of a friend, I was hoping you nice folks might be able to help me out a bit.
Frame is a theft recovery and painted about 4-5 times but looks like it was originally dark blue; it had been built up as a fixie with some decent components but neglected for ages. The BB is stamped with a S/N that looks like it may be NW6210 but it is crazy hard to read.
the drop outs are stamped Shimano and EF and the stays are chrome most the way up.
The lugs are nothing ultra fancy but seem to be a bit nicer then most and it has some nice details like a pump peg and the lug to hang the chain from. It also has some small square braze ons for the down tube shifters and front derailure. Standard bottom bracket and 26.8 seat post. It seems to have a short TT given the size of the ST leading to the tall head tube and a really long (8 1/4") steerer. It came with a Tange fork but I am pretty sure it is not the original.
I will be happy to provide any pics or info you request; thanks in advance for any help on the ID.
