Expect your frame is early 90s - a pair of Scott DH bars would be highly appropriate as would be a pair of Shamals or even a pair of 650c Aerospokes in pink! I was a member of triathlon club called Team Flamingo who introduced the concept of fluoro pink lycra racing kit to the world - I've got some somewhere if you feel the need for matching kit!

May have a spare front DA hubbed CXP33 black rimmed wheel. Not a chance you'll get 700's in there.

Dead cool frame! The price you paid really is a steal. Why not build it up as a proper tri or tt bike? Much look awesome with that 80's colour scheme....

I can get budget modern 650c for about £140 so its not all bad but, it will have to sit on the back burner for a wee while. I think this will be a polish & loft candidate.

and these look good value:

and these look perfect but I bet will go pricey:

I like sprints but cant see myself as a TT-er yet.

What about some nice early 90's Zipp wheels? Think Quintana Roo bikes.....

Or build your own:
