What a sorry little Koga this was with it's gel saddle cover, chainwheel guard, high rise stem, straight bars, frame mounted lock and handlebar bag. Fortunately under all that clutter was a quality little machine aching to escape. Stripped, cleaned to within an inch of what ife it had left and a few parts replaced brought out the best that the little fella had to offer.

Later added some white tyres and used black pvc tape to cover the neat hole and scratches the frame mounted lock had left.

Not a high calibre machine but I was really pleased with the transformation.

Seat tube?

Hello, I've just bought the same frame, any ideas on the seat tube size as i need a seat post and it hasn't arrived yet for me to measure it?
