help identifying track frame

any help would be appreciated on finding info about this frame.

all i know is that Sugoi is a sports clothing company, so i would assume the rider was sponsored by them. i got this frame in australia so it could be australian made, maybe!

some features of the frame which could be of use identifying it would be

campagnolo dropouts
S 286 stamped on the bottom bracket lug. plus some other nubers that aren't readable
seat stays go around the seat tube lug ( as opposed to just stopping at the side )
curved seat stay crossbar support

thats pretty much it, check out the pictures
thanks

Those full wrap-over seat stays look typically British.

Could be a Brian Rourke frame - nowadays he's very much associated with the wraparound seat stays, though I suspect that in the past other builders have also done this as their 'trademark'.

He'd almost certainly respond to an email enquiry. See his site and an example of his seatstays at http://www.brianrourke.co.uk/index.a...om&text=custom (about halfway down the page).

He sponsors Nicole Cooke (current UCI World Cup leader) and runs a very active shop /framebuilding business in Stoke-on-Trent in the UK.

The word Sugoi is Japanese. That's all I can tell you.

Sougi is a Vancouver, BC based company, so it might be a bike from this area. S could stand for Sam Whittingham. http://www.fortebikes.com/

I'm going to bet it is a lugged Japanese frame. Sugio is the brand as well as a clothing manufacturer. It's pretty too.

in Japanese it means 'great', like if you did some great stunt maneuver in front of a japanese person they would yell out SUGOI!

as soon as i saw it i immediately thought that it was japanese, with that paint job and obviously having sugoi stickers on it.

once i researched the name and found out who the company was and that they're from canada. i thought it would've been just painted and stickered up for sponsorship purposes, because the paintjob is pretty average (i wouldn't think that its a factory job)

i'd like for it to be a japanese frame, but i'm just not feeling it

i had a look at his site. the wraparound stays in that picture look like one continuous piece of tubing and i think mine is pretty much just like normal seat stays with some capping that goes from one seat stay around to the other. i'll definitely send off an email to see if they can enlighten me.

Alot of builders had wrap around seatstays. Francisco Cuevas used this on his frames going back to the 1950s at least.
