Hi all, I just noticed a picture on my bulletin board, out of a magazine gu essing 86-87 era. I don't remember the name, but they had a section called "Hot Tubes", showcasing small frame builders, hand crafted, etc. This one i s a Zunow "Lepton" model. More of a triathlon bike but like the TT euro bik es, 700 rear,650 front, long horn style bars. But the article says Teru Kag eyama is the man behind the marque, Zunow means "brain" in japanese, he and
   two others work in a small shop in Osaka and have been building bikes for 20 years. They put out about 600 a year, about 20% for export. The article explains the emphasis on road racing and triathlon allows more freedom with
   design, the steel tubes are custom shaped by Tange. This one is painted pr etty wild, lime green/yellow/red. Aero brake levers but still toe clips! So rt of on the border of KOF/on topic? Tom Forbes Houston,Texas. USA.
