Both are great deals but that Sekine really rocks at $25 plus shipping. That has to be made of decent tubing. It looks a lot like my Sekine SHS 271 which is tange champion (likely no. 3 tubing). If Appleton were closer, I'd be sorely tempted to buy it.

That's odd. They show up here, even the ones you included in your response. And the server logs show they've been downloaded several hundred times. Let me know if you still can't see them.

I suspect you're right, but there's no tubing decal on the frame. It feels reasonably light, and I can include a Tange #3 tubing decal with the frame if you like.

One oddity about these old Sekines is that the BB is often 70 mm and British threaded. I believe some older European bikes (perhaps Belgian?) came this was as well. It's fixable but the buyer may need a 73 mm BB and spacers. My SHS 271 has a 70 mm BB.

Right you are. This frame is English thread with a 70mm shell. As you suggest, a 73mm cartridge and a couple spacers would be workable, but an easier solution might be to use a cup-and-cone bottom bracket instead of a cartridge, and use a spindle for a 70mm shell with English thread cups.

Whatever the SHS/SHT Sekine tubing is, ride quality will not disappoint IME.

Ah, for some reason my work network is blocking the images. I can see it just fine on my mobile. False alarm; personal problem.

Seconded on the Sekine - I've been commuting on that same frame for the last 3 years, it's great. Originally came with 27 1-1/4 wheels, so if you run 700c with it you can clear 35c tires + fenders.

$25 for a wide tire chromo commuter is pretty solid. The only drawback is there's no cable guides on the frame (hint: run it fixed gear).

What do you need for cable guides? I'm willing to add whatever braze-ons you want for reasonable cost. You'd be responsible for the repaint, though

I'm with you. This is a fine frame to build up as a commuter or as a gravel mutt . . . .

Not looking to buy another, John - one Sekine is enough for me for now!

Heck!

John, what would shipping be to 28540?

Thanks.... I have a nice early DA group which could do that Sekine well.

@bikemig

i don’t have it yet. Still in talks with the wife.

I do have a 21” 271 model so I know these are good frames. Just never liked the racy feel of the smaller frame. Been looking for the 56cm size. Not like I am lacking frames to build.
