Can Anyone Identify This Bike
#1
I just bought a frame and fork for my next project. The owner thought it was a Soma, but the head badge doesn't look like any I have seen. The frame had been repainted, so all decals are gone and I have not found a serial number anywhere on the frame. From the weight, it seems to be made of CroMoly steel. The lugs look like the usual stuff coming out of Japan or Taiwan during the late 70's and early 80's. It has forged dropouts and a derailer hanger. Can anyone identify the head badge?
