26.8 suggests it may be tange 2 tubing. Which is odd considering kenevans is an australian based builder, and tange is more commonly used in japan. none the less, great frame!

Not so. Many Aussie frame builders used Tange tubing. It is good stuff. Easily as good as Reynolds and Columbus tubing at the time. It was used because it was cheaper.
