    Information about Level track frames

    Can anyone give me some information about Level track frames? There's one on FGG tomorrow and I've seen a couple others there before. Someone here has a black / gold one. Best frames EVAR. Are they still made?

    Thanks sashae, Ceya. Is Matsuda-san willing to sell to Americans? Or are they picked up second-hand in the US? I checked his website, but didn't find much useful information. It looks like they start at around $1200.

    These frames are amazing. Proof -


    Here's some compact geometry for ya! Tell me you wouldn't ride it...

    All the builders are willing to sell to Americans, yes some want to keep stuff inside Japan but it is to educate the people of the art of building,racing and whatever.
