Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Presto Keirin?

So much helpful info over at the Level thread, I wonder what anybody knows about Presto frames.
Wifey's is very nicely built, with PRESTO and the rider's name (in kanji) relived into the BB shell. Lovely lugs, with what look like the same ends as Kalavinka.
The original stickers said "PRESTO -Perfection and Design".

I saw one for sale on CL some months ago, but never another.
Help please.

Thx Ceya. I found it on Tomity's site when I bought it, but that's all I know.
Cheers.
