|I've seen several of these frames in my riding area. Haven't seen any recent posts on the topic here on the board...anybody out there familiar with these custom frames?|

|Your posting caught my eye as I live in Yamaguchi prefecture and I haven't seen any of these frames. I am assuming Yamaguchi is a Japanese frame. I'll be stopping by the LBS either today or tomorrow and inquire for you, if the english speaking mechanic is on duty.

|Yamaguchi is a frame builder who did work in/for the US Olympic squad a few years back (made some radical (non UCI legal by today's standards) steel frames at the time.
One of his frame designs resembled a Lotus frame... only in steel (a cantilevered "Z" shape with no downtube) and I almost snagged one (for sentimental reasons).
