Got this from a local seller on fleabay last week

It's a early 90's Look KG196- came setup for triathlon with 9 speed Dura-Ace

Planning to rebuild it with a Mavic 8 speed road group i got a couple of weeks ago a la Alex Zulle.......

very nice - are you going for a road or a TT build?

Very nice buy. I've never seen one in the flesh.

That'll be a striking build. Lookin forward to seeing it built up. Is it the same as the one that he (Zulle) threw into the verge when the Mavic Zap went wrong during a time trial?

Definitely a road build :-)

It's very similar to the one Zulle tossed, but i paid for this one :D

Will have to speak to Gil about some decals.....................

Coincidentally I have been looking through some old 'Cycling' mags and found this super Graham Watson shot of the man and his bike in the '93 Tour of Spain. Posted here for 'educational purposes' to show what the bike was like in action.

It is virtually the same as yours but think there may be some slight detail differences - but note the zip-ties holding the gear cables on!

I also think the top-tube is a bit thinner.
