Yep just put it on today.

Its 70mm long, from a quick spin this length feels better although i might to drop them stem down a bit.

I also removed the second bottle cage, the butcher had just drilled two holes and screwed the cage on with self tappers :)

Finally got around to setting her up as a fixed gear, I got side tracked for a while building up a GIOS.

Here is a pic:

It rides well, the gearing seems ok.

[thread dig]

Tamari for sale on the Gold Coast:

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/tugun/b ... 1141431424

Paging Mulger Bill - do you still have your Tamari? The examples I can find all look like quality frames. Were they imported from Italy then decals applied here? Do you know who made the frames?

This one's too big for me unfortunately.

Edit: seller wants it gone and will take $100.

Too big for me too.
No idea of the maker, never could find much online. I got suggestions that they were a of a once off run of a small number of frames for a club in Qld (memory's a bit hazy without digging out very old emails) As shown above the crown and seatstay tips were panto'd Tc.
There is a Made in Italy decal left forward end of the top tube and an Ital BB, three brake cable guides for full length brake cable.

I'll get around to rebuilding one day when D-1 isn't as much a thing :wink:

^ A bit of Googling tells me they could have been made by Masi or Milani in Italy, and even John Abeni of Europa fame possibly had something to do with them.

The Tamari decals are Masi replicas - does that hint that they came out of the Masi factory or someone was just trying to capture that Italian kudos? I find it hard to believe Masi would replicate their own decals.
