NJS group buy.
We find someone willing to fill up a shipping container for us and sell em to us as cost plus x%.
It would work if we could find someone trustworthy to hit up japan and amass the frames.
I'd be in if we could get em at decent ish prices.

Another idea, as much as I would like an NJS frame group buy kind of thing, I think this might be more realistic.
You think Alien would be willing to do a group buy on the lugged steel frames he's selling, last I heard they were like 350, I dont know that I think they are worth 350, but if we could get some good color choices and a price break, it might be cool to get a lugged steel frame at a decent price.

Edit: he offers it in a lot of colors now I guess, but he charges for the powder coating...

if IRO could do something with nice tubing and a nice lugged straight blade fork or something I could be persuaded, though I prefer the look of lugs.

More so an NJS frame, as the construction and materials and workmanship are nicer, but I think finding someone in Japan willing to help collect frames for us is far fetched unless parker lewis would do it, and beyond that finding enough people to drop change for the number of frames we would need to get to make it a good deal for all parties involved is a little far fetched.
