    More than likely was built by Konno in the early 80s, as Specialized farmed out a great deal of their steel Allez production to Japan.

    Steal it! I mean...any pics of one? Never seen an Allez track frame, but
    the road frames from that era are mighty nice.

    There was a red one on eBay a few months back...definitely a Konno/Sanrensho built one, all built up with Campy...and it went for something stupid like $600.

    edit: proof!

    not ray's is a few doors down from 666 laundromat, so be careful when you're snooping around.

    Some of the Allez bikes were made by Yoshi Konno/3Rensho, but a lot more of them were made by Miyata. I'm not sure if there's a way to tell.

    I inquired about that one a while ago. Larry said it would be verrry pricey because of the rarity.

    $150... WTF?

    I also asked him about it. Here is his response:

    Thanks for the inquiry and interest in the SanRensho/ Specialized
    That SanRensho is appraised at $1,900. It's the only one we have ever seen or know of. There are some SanRensho frames out there but not under the Specialized badge

    I would rather have a custom...

    Yeah, Larry doesn't really want to sell his bikes. He's more of a collector than a sales guy...
