    Osaka or Nagoya?

    So I will be in Japan in late March in these two towns. Anyone know where I could buy a keirin frame?

    Nagoya is pretty boring. There are no shops in Osaka that sell keirin frames either.
    It is tough work! Did you want a new custom frame or used ex-race frame?

    If you are in Osaka you could try to contact Nagasawa-san, he lives there and he makes keirin frames.

    I believe that Levant and Panasonic are also based in Osaka.

    Also you should go to the bike museum in Sakai while you are in Osaka.

    There's a shop called Darwin in Kyoto, but I bought my frame in Nagoya. Happy hunting.
