So this is a new one for me… I knew that Itoh frames had the cast aluminum lugs. But this thing has some aluminum tubing as well. The only steel is the seat tube. The chain and seat stays are aluminum as are the top and down tubes. There is also a steel sleeve in the bottom bracket. Came with alloy wheels, stem and bars… brakes were Dia-Compe center-pulls. By all accounts it is a mid to late 70s.

Is that bracket on the chain stays for a kickstand?

How do you tighten the seatpost? It doesn't appear to be a clamp, since there's no split.

That is a cable stop on the chain stay. Or do you mean those things on the rear dropouts?
