I just purchased this bike from Japan and was told it was a prototype Kuwahara aluminium frame race bike.
As per pictures it has some very unusual tube profiles. It has Kuwahara stickers on it.
I just purchased this bike from Japan and was told it was a prototype ("It will be something that I received from MX International 28 years ago. Processing technology only Kuwahara was not of chromoly is single in the prototype that you have created") purchased by the seller around 1988, but unfortunately i have no other information about it, so any help would be appreciated.
The complete bike weighs about 10.65kg / 23.479 pounds as is without the front disc covers on. The bike in the photos is exactly as i received it, and it came with the Mongoose pad and pedals on it.
