When you feel like you are missing a little bit of flouro in your life 8)

I was told/sold as a 1993, could be a year earlier, but I don't really know. The photos don't capture the flouro yellow, but I can assure you it is. And the other colour is purple/blue.
I am selling as frame and forks, bottle cage and the original XT M730 BB as it is an Italian size??? 70 x 122.5mm (the sleeve does have a small split in it however). The frame/forks have been touched up in a few places, and I have taken photos of all the places that are not perfect, but overall, I would say most of the marks are in places you won't see when built up.
Spec as follows:

Size C-C: 17.5"
Size C-T: 20"
Head tube: 1-1/8"
Front Mech: 31.8mm
BB:70mm (Included)
Rear spacing: 130mm OLN
Seatpost: Not quite sure on this, but 26.4-26.8 seems to be the size

Price is £75 posted in the UK.

Any other questions, just let me know.


Cheers...Nick

The advert said bought in 1993. I have a feeling it's a bit earlier.
Only other one on the internet search said 1989 ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/95587520@N ... otostream/ ), but I would guess 1991 if I had to take a stab.
...assuming groupset is original. it was the groupset to have and thumbies would still be used.
(quick look at bb... give date as end of 1990, so it couldn't be earlier than a 1991 model)...

Serial number or Basso themselves may be able to confirm the date to anyone that cares.

Sweet frame Nick and +1 for the bargain price. If I didn't have enough already I'd be pulling the trigger
