The second Eimei; Cinelli lugs, Columbus SLX tubing, and a mix of various parts from here and there.
It's taken a little hard work to get it done but it was a lot of fun doing it and even more fun to ride.
The guy who sold it to me somehow managed to get a 27.2 seatpost rammed down into a 27 size downtube, thing took me an hour of hammering to free it. The headset that came on it was jacked up too so I was happy when my lbs gave me a used, properly working one for free. Thanks Ebisu Pro-Tech!
Also thanks to Tanabe-san at Tsukumo Cycles for sorting out the front brake.
Another mention is that this was the first wheel I built up from scratch, still rolling smooth and strong. Looking forward to doing more in the future.

i really really hope that you did not have this fork drilled. Would be a crime.


This Eimei is Beautiful! A fusion of Japanese keirin with modern day track racing. Perfect in every way. Love the chrome lugs!

LOL brake lever?

LOL brake lever?
I dig that Cinelli stamp on the headtube lug

damn , this just looks

damn , this just looks great. The polished / chromed lugs are amazing . I usually dont care for Phil hubs but it looks great on there . All I would add is either wrap the bars, or grips, and it'll be perfect .

Front Brake?

Where are you hiding it?


the fork wasn't drilled yet for the calliper at the time of the photos.
it's on there now.

cormia eclipse

Yeah, I was looking for one while I was getting parts together but they were hardly turning up on e-bay or yahoo auctions. Maybe I should search again.
The grammo stem is lux, does make the ride just that more supple tho.
Thanks for the comments!

On a side note, I grew up in Eureka...
