Hmm...you are right, dang it! I was so impressed w/ the ride of my little 50cm 1000 that I figured I'd low key keep an eye out for a slightly larger one. This one is perfectly my size.

@Robvolz - your 2nd Japanese bike?
completely baffled that a custom Framebuilder in Japan would make a tandem considering tandems are illegal in Japan*

*apparently the law was changed 2 years ago. But still…..

I'm quite baffled by the one pretty bad pic.
Are the helmet a strapping hiding defects at the head tube area and the captain's middle tube juncture.
And the blue planter looks like an on board garbage container, but matches the 3Rensho decals pretty well.

I have a hunch that those aren't helmet straps. I bet that they are Velcro straps holding a frame pump.

Bill BOSTON, small frame at auction in Hatfield, PA. Ad says it was his prototype.
Looks like a Terry bike that was built by Nishiki to me.

Auction ends 25 Apr

Currently at $200

​​​​​​https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item...stom-road-bike

​​​​​​Bill Boston Custom Road Bike

Bill Boston Custom Road Bike. Up for auction is a piece of cycling history. A custom frame builder from Swedesboro, NJ, Bill Boston was at the forefront of custom bike building in the United States in the 1980's. He was the first to incorporate the short top-tube and smaller wheel geometry for women-specific frames. We are proud to present his prototype model LS1, which was commissioned and built for a local rider. Overall 34"h x 60"w, frame 23"h x 38"w. Bike features a 24" front wheel and 26" rear and was ridden by a 5', 1" rider. Paint, Suntour components all in good working order. Newer odometer.

Been trying to think of a friend the right height for this, but my friends are too tall or too short or have too many bikes, so here it is:

Davidson Impulse looks to be in pretty good shape.

This is extremely tempting. I LOVE the way my son's Miyata rides, which took my completely by surprise because I was expecting it to ride like a slug because they are known for being great riders when 'loaded down' but no, it rides better than most others I have ridden, without any luggage whatsoever. Which is funny because it weighs more than other similar bikes.

That looks promising, but maybe too good to be true? Looking at his profile he has sold many old vintage bikes, all at fairly high prices. Many of the bikes pictured in the ad would fetch well over $195 without even trying, I have to wonder if the pictured bikes are a "bait and switch."


Definitely hope that's not the case though, I'd totally rock that pink Lotus.

Weyless front hub but rear not a match

would think the stamped ends prevent it being a Comp GS as suggested above
