Motor Paced Stayer Frame and Fork

Motor Paced Stayer – Could it be a Jan le Grand Build for TI-Raleigh Rider René Pijnen

You probably think seat stays are quite boring, why on earth would I devote a blog post to the two narrow tapering tubes on the back of a frame? Well as you hopefully all know by now, I do like my details, especially the small details! The various designs and subtle differences in seat stays can tell me a lot about an SBDU frame, even the frame age and tubing type.
