Sadness

This is a great Japanese gem.  Double butted Tange chromoly frame.  Dura ace EX components.  Beautiful ride but sadly, it got struck on the top tube by something that left a nasty dent.  I’ve had several great great bikes in the past that have been marred by dents or dings.  None have been anything crucial or structurally compromising but I personally just hate DENTS, scratches are okay but DENTS are a no no. 

With this bike though, and for the sake of this blog I’m going CNC some frame blocks and try to ease the dent out as much as I can.  If any of you readers and experts have any other ideas let me know!
