Ok...so I know what it is ..its a Daccordi MTB...its got loads of decals that tell me that.....but wondering if anyone knows anything about them....age, tubing etc.

I am guessing from the Konaesque splatter paint job it's got to be late 80s. The crank on it was a shimano biopace FC B124....which I think pre dates MT60 (Deore) ....so maybe 1986/7. The rest of the kit was mis-matched but definately 88/89...

The roady hertitage is obvious in the design and its got some really nice details on the BB shell - "Mountain Climber" pressed in.

A quick google search revealed this other beauty..but thats all I can find. :(

Surprisingly for an 80s bike its not the size of a barn door.....which unfortunatley means it wont fit me....so what to do with it ??

Pics below :D

I'll get my tape measure out. :D

Threads should be Italian obviously .....but they are English as it had a left handed thread on the drive side. Headset is 1". Seat post is 27mm

I wont be building up though...its too small for me and I have a growing queue of unfinished projects to get done :oops:

Well the other one looked to be built out of Oria tubing nice Italian road tubing, imagine this may well be the same stuff :D

It is a real beaut Ant :D Pity it is too small for you :( Daft question for an 80's ATB/MTB frame but how heavy does it feel :?: :wink:

I really really like it :D

Hi...I think this one is built out of the same stuff.

For an 80s frame it is surprisingly light ....not super light by any means ...but wasnt the dead weight i was expecting it to be. :D I will get it on the scales when i get home and also take some measurements.

Up for sale at the weekend. :D
