This 3Rensho Katana frameset was constructed with the rare and popular Modeulo lugs by Yoshi Konno. The lugs are a beauty to look at which shows immense craftsmanship. The katana was one of the model by Yoshi Konno where the seat stays are bladed like a 'katana' to increase the aerodynamics of the frameset.
This is a very rare piece and has no dents or dings, just a few paint chips.
