Right then, I've stripped down my recent eBay purchase (many not very careful owners).
The BB is defeating me at the moment, but nothing a big vice at work wont help shift.
The majority of the frame looks sound, but the non-drive side seat stay will need looked and one of the cable guides on the top tube is a bit mashed(see below).
Can anyone tell me more about the original spec of the Kili Pro? Most of the stuff I stripped of this is doesn't look original.
Any can anyone recommend a frame builder/resprayer in the west midlands?
That's lovely, same colour and decals as my old Traverse elite, which was a '92 model, True temper AVR tubing. If it helps, I will list what it had on it and you might have a guide for the same if not better parts;
Groupset was XT with thumbies
Headset was XT
Pedals were Victor lightweight alloy and black cage with ' Saracen'
toeclips and straps
Stem was Zoom
Seatpost was Kalloy ( in fact same one as was on my '93 tufftrax, now surplus to requirements)
Seat was a Saracen number, leather on foam
Rims were Ritchey ? Vantage pro ( US flag with vantage pro label on rim)
Tyres were Ritchey Megabite 2.1 skin wall folders with kevlar bead
Stainless steel spokes
Hubs, not sure, possibly XT
Cassette, XT silver
Bars, silver Kalloy
Seat clamp, a wire uno design, which was very good
QRs, were XT
Brake levers, XT two finger
Bar grips, am sure were Saracen, but they did'nt last long.
Above listed was as it came from the bike shop, when I lost it, it was original bar a set of specialised bar ends , crud claw and panaracer smoke on the rear and smoke lite on the front. I really must find that photograph of the thing.
Oh, the frame number was EO 7..........., I got it written down somewhere
