Actually sold now but you can still look at the pix.

Seller sez Nervex lugs but I'm doubtful. I'm thinking more likely Oscar Egg. Or Ekla? I think the fork crown is Ekla.

With the right stem and handlebars, you can probably get a comfortable fit.

We made some like that at Trek, for salespeople to carry around and show off the Trek socketed dropouts and investment cast bottom bracket shells and lugs before the actual bikes were available.

Do you need to put it in a tiny little stand to build it up?

(Actually, it would be fun to get a pic of it in one of those massive motorized floor-to-ceiling stands at a modern shop.....)

I'm thinking about going for it, but the lack of water bottle cage mounting holes is a big deterrent. I really hate those bands.
