Help Identify Handmade Polish Frame

Hello!

I acquired this bicycle from someone a couple of years ago who claimed that the frame was made by hand in Poland but cannot remember the builder.

If anyone has any idea of who may have produced this frame I would be very grateful. Of note is the diagonal bridge between the seat stays and perhaps the heart shaped lugs between what is allegedly Columbus tubing.

Thank you for your help!​​​​​​​

I don't know the frame's maker but I do see really dried out tires that should be replaced. Andy

The only distinguishing feature is the crooked seat stay bridge, and that might help you identify the builder. Otherwise, the lugs are untouched by human hands and there is no evidence that this was an accomplished builder. I'm hoping the defect at the shoreline of the seat lug is in the paint, which appears to have been applied by hand. If it weren't for the seat stay bridge, I would have guessed it was a production bike. No glaring errors in construction, just that it's unremarkable in every way.

Apparently modified production bike.
