    ever heard of a Katakura "Silk"

    older Japanese bike, saw one on a local ad, just curious if its ever popped up on anyone's radar as anything interesting? is it really a touring bike? decent frame? worth as a overhaul project?


    thanks
    Rollo

    I've heard of them. From what I've heard, they are nicely made frames. I can't say that I recall what their geometry was though.
