Had this special bike for a couple of years and used it plenty before passing it along.
It was fitted with different setups of handlebars, wheels and chainrings over the time. The setup in the first image was the one I used mostly however I had it built completely period correct at times. The frame had a lovely construction with smooth fillet brazing and an amazing wheelbase of less than 94 cm. It showed several nice details such as the setback BB shell (also seen on Cinelli Lasers), single shift boss and completely internal cable routings. The builder is unknown but it is likely to be an MKM frame rebranded by Paul Milnes.
