Sekine Zine Update

The Sekine Project's original goal was to find out about the company, and eventually publish a small zine with my findings. I've been working to accomplish this over the past few months.
The booklet is well underway, with a target of having printed copies in hand by mid-November. I've spent hours editing the text and photos, revising and updating. New information keeps coming my way, which delays completion but is welcome because of the more comprehensive picture provided. I've been fortunate enough to have a few really good interviews, and talk to other knowledgeable people.
The zine will be around 30 pages, with something nice for a cover. When I have them done, I'll post them up here for sale. Cost will be printing+mailing.

In the meantime, here's a photo of an original Sekine lug set; Tange lugs and Shimano dropouts.
Nice forged dropouts, stamped and welded lugs need filing to finish.
I still welcome any submissions of information and Sekine bicycle stuff. Contact me via email; rodoftheflies (this space to prevent spam)
