    ID spatter paint aluminum frame, please. With Mavic rims, Deore

    Been quite a while since I've found anything interesting. I'm hoping this is.

    Any ideas on the maker? Looks to be aluminum with black spatter paint job, Mavic wheels, Deore and Manitou forks.

    Thanks!

    The cable guide on top of the frame has a similar look...maybe riveted into the frame.

    It looks at first glance like the Japan-made Yamakuni frames which were used by several Swiss brands in the early 1990s. Many across multiple brands had a "tubing" sticker on the seat tube which also mentioned the maker and country of origin.

    I will try to find some pics.

    Your bike has a lot in common with a 1991 Kuwahara Maragay, but the attachment of the seat stays to the seat tube isn't the same in your pictures as in the catalog.

    Looks like a Yamakuni frame. I had a Rocky Mountain Stratos with the same riveted cable guides, same drop outs, and same cobby welds. One of the welds even had a wire sticking out.
