General Information

This Type Special is built with Reynolds 531 butted tubing.

Various frame parts underwent a diet:
- the Campagnolo 1010 rear dropouts had material shaved of the back. After that eyelets were brazed on back, so fenders could still be used. Flanges have drillings.
- there are 3 elips shaped cut outs in the BB shell
- multiple cut outs in the lugs

The wrap over stays show the usual 'KZ' engravings.
