OCEAN frame detail photos.....(kansai, Japan)

Here are the detail shots of the 3 Ocean frames I built up recently. Sorry for the delay, to everyone who has been
emailing/PMing me for these photos. My good friend Rick Miskiv took the photos (thanks), and we have both been moving office/shops recently so have been a bit busy....

nice. I really like the offset seat stays on the 'street' model. can Mr. Kusaka do that with a 'normal' front end?

yup. thats super classy. i like it that the straps were manipulated to lean against the crank so they are not just "hanging" off the cranks.


kalavinka lugs or Nagazawa lugs. which do you guys like? i personally like the kalavinka ones more but only by a tad.

Nice lookin' bikes, I don't know if I could get into that metal flake glitter paint though...

Maybe it looks better in person.

One moonlit evening, as I pedaled home from school on a road freshly coated with snow, I decided that my dream bike would be white with little glittery bits in it. The tiny flakes kaleidoscopically reflecting light at every angle will set my heart aflutter. The bike above is a mockery of my dream.

I really like the bikes otherwise though. They are all pretty sexy actually.

I'm sure they will accept your money too but while you're waiting entertain us by telling what kind of a frameset & custom options you're getting?

White 62cm keirin sentouki with silver flake and red decals. Aero fork and classic seat stays.
I will probably place my order next month since I will be dropping $500 on some dura ace cranks and hubs tomorrow.

That sounds cool. I personally probably would opt for the rainbow flake to add some extra silliness, though.

hm...

going price for dura ace cranks - ~$250
going price for pair of dura ace track hubs high flange - ~300

$500 sounds about right.

btw those are damn sexy bikes
