The builder of this bike, Masahiko Makino was the chief frame builder at 3rensho and has worked on many frames for the world’s top cyclists.

After leaving 3Rensho (which is no longer in existence) he started his own brand called MAKINO. With his three staff members, he continues to make Japan’s top frames, which enjoys strong support by many top racers. Makino’s got a reputation for producing more elaborate, original lugs that fit elegantly into the frame.During the Atlanta Olympic Games, a Japanese keirin racer won a gold in the 1000m TT on a 3Rensho, built by Makino himself.
