Was hit by a car a couple of months back, just been to the decent LBS and they checked out the frame - bent beyond use...

Gutted.....

Sad story

Makes me cry

I remember that baby very well. It offered such a smooth ride. Not only because of its quality frame, but also because the Dura Ace EX/AX compontens group that was just like new.

Its active cycling live wasn't very live long ...and than that nasty accident. At least good you are okay, James. Most important of course.

What will you be able to re-use, James?

Thanks for the sympathy,it's a sad story alright.

Most of the bike is ok, just the frame, rims and non drive side crank that are knackered.

As the Pegoretti is on the way I probably wont be building up a road bike so will probably sell on the kit as I don't really need it.

Anyone want some lovely Dura Ace stuff, 7 spd, top condition, if not will ebay when back from hols.

Sorry about that. Which bars is the bike sporting in the pics? Look like Mavic deep jobs.

Hi Hilts
Sad to hear of its demise.
I may well be interested in the Dura Ace Gruppo. Drop me a line and let me know what sort of price you would be after for it.

Cheers
Jamie
