mayuko's 650c frame

this frame was built using prugnat s4 or bocama competition 83 lugs, i cant really see much of a difference between the two. from what i can figure out they would have been made in the late '70s to early '80s. either way, i came across them at haxby cycles, my local bike shop and slowly but surely persuaded nigel to sell them to me. i was stoked when the time came to use these lugs and that they were going to be chrome plated, it gives this frame a really classic british look.

the vintage lugs

i wasn't to keen on the seat lug from this set so i made a sleeve to match the lugs

the option of running rear gears later in life
