    I could easily burp out a slightly modernized version of my Fuji Team. Stopping might be a problem as I lack a decent set of brakes that aren't already spoken for.

    Tis the pivot bolt I was thinking of. My Fuji Pro was drilled out for recessed brakes in the front only, by a previous owner. (It was a former fixie that I rescued, so perhaps that explains it.) ...

    There's a strong suspicion that they rebranded Tange and/or Ishiwata tubing, possibly made to spec for them. My Fuji Team has an Ishiwata stamp on the fork steerer.
