The last few years (sidelined by health problems) I've been trying to build a nice vintage road bike circa late 80's early 90's. I decided on DA 7402 with downtube shifters but I wanted a Japanese steel road frame to go with Shimano parts, but its so hard to find distributors for Japanese framebuilders.
I found a bike shop that sells online that is a Panasonic importer but it's going to cost $1,600 bucks for a Panasonic road frame. I'm not above paying that at all, but I would like to know of other options.
Anyone know anybody who distributes Japanese built frames?
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I really couldn't figure out which one to put this thread in...
