Makino Frames question

Was wondering if anybody knows if Makino (former 3Rensho builder) has any importers stateside, or if his operation is purely custom per order? Thanks.

I would go and ask this is the Singlespeed/Fixed gear forum.

There are many folks there who have Keirin frames. They could definitely answer this question in a heartbeat esp wrt to whether you can order direct from Makino, wait times and shipping issues.

No stateside dealer. You will have to contact them personally. Most are custom one man with helper shops. The others are big companies with computers that help but keirin frames are hand made with builders on site.

shipping from there is about $120.00 and time frame depends on the back order if any at the time of making your order.

S/F,
CEYA!

Talk to Shants. He's got one. He got it from E-Framebank, before the ceased stateside orders, but he may have some info on Makino. He knows lots of stuff.
