    Ok, Finally got the bike together with these parts:
    Sugino 75 cranks
    TA 48t ring
    Sugino 75 BB
    Izumi Chain
    EAI cog
    mks pedals
    Nitto Jaguar stem
    Nitto 123 bars
    Soyo long grips
    Vantage headset
    kalloy seatpost
    turbo saddle
    panaracer tires
    don't worry about the wheelset.
    I love this bike. took it for a 20 mile ride yesterday. the frame fits me perfectly.
    it's fast and light...and tight, almost too tight, lots and lots of toe overlap.
    well, way more than i'm used to. The sugino 75 cranks are so nice and solid. the jaguar stem is surprisingly comfortable (first time riding a stem with that much drop).
    Two things i'm not so happy about... the chainring isn't round so the chain gets loose at one point in the rotation... and the NJS Vantage headset it came with is indexed, so it's riding no handed is a challenge.
    the bearings have vibrated little divots in the bearing races, great.
    here are some more pics.

    Thanks for the compliments.
    i'm definitely asking santa for a headset.
    New Interpro frames are around 1,000,000 won. I got this frame used with a smooth sugino 75 BB and the indexed headset for 300,000 won. It's got Tange dropouts with unknown lugs. The new interpros have nagasawa lugs, different seat binder.
    In Korea there's also Corex track frames which are also lugged steel keirin frames. Interpro and Corex were the only Korean brands I saw when I was there.
    They make them in lugged steel or aluminum in lots of different colors, even with the sparkle flake paint you see on japanese keirin frames.
    if you didn't see this yet, there are more pics in this thread.
