That looks completely mint like it's never been used...seriously good buy!

Is it going to get any use when built up?

Yeah, I'd build it up like a race bike if you're not going to be going crazy on it. How big is the top tube? Looks short. Some french guy used to race a Specialized in the late 90's. He used to ride for Sunn before that. He was super smooth.

Sorry to butt in :D
I've got this one which is a Comp as opposed to a Pro. Not quite as box fresh as yours but I like it, shame its not red though I have to say :?
Being aluminium its unbelievably light for a bmx frame, I was going to build it up but my Floval flyer has jumped the queue :D
Hijack over :wink:
