This is the bike from my boss. Total mixed buch of parts, steel frame, parts from all eras.
Do you recognise the frame.
It's a special one, because there are only made 6 of them.
The seatpost/saddle and stem have been changed by my roommate, because he is borrowing it.
The usually there is a Ritchey post with Bontrager saddle on it and a Ringlé stem. (With a crack in it.)

And the neglected front, but still the bike has something well.. nice.

Hi Rene,

It is the Brentjes replica. There were two. An el cheapo aluminium one and a steel one. The steel one used Columbus tubing. I thought MaxOR, but your bike obviously hasn't. Many specs are not original. The fork has to be a Rond for example. Don't remember what stem etc, but it defo wasn't Ringle. I think it had a XTR drivetrain. The HS22s are original equipment. Price was very impressive. 10000 guilders or even slightly more. I have the catalogue with the bike in it.

To be exact, this is on of the 6 frames build for Bart. Only the frames were to long for him, which he didn't like.
He had his connetions with concorde so he could get a frame.
That why there is no type on the frame.
The bike is build by himself, only not with the intention to build a replica.

Okay, that probably explains why no MaxOR is used. It is a 1 (6!) of.

Oh it's not my bike, my boss is the owner.
And the owner of this neglected bike is a mechanic. :D
