If the OP was referring to the Seat Tube, then I would assume the size reduction was done to help with fitting a wider choice of Seat Posts. The original size would have been 27.0mm, which are somewhat less common than other sizes.

The inside of the Hei Hei Seat Tube is lined with an Alloy sleeve, which is in turn bonded to the inside of the Titanium tubing. I don't know the thickness of the Alloy sleeve, but I would assume that it would be easier and more beneficial to have the Seat Tubed reamed out to 27.2mm, which would give the owner wider choice of Seat Posts.

The OP does say that the former owner reduced the size, but looking at the pictures in the link, I am now wondering if the original Alloy sleeve has been mistaken for a modification.

the previous owner reduced the length, but the work did well.
I kept the original cap.

is a sales post, no discussion.
any questions or clarification will be glad to respond personally, do not mess up the announcement.
thanks F.R.O.

I don’t think the commentary detracts from the advert. It wasn’t clear from your comment whether it was length or diameter that had been reduced. It’s all helpful stuff for a potential buyer :)

Looking at the pictures and work carried out and taking into account the sellers added details i would hazard a guess that it is a repair from a crack or other damage. Might be a good job but still a repair.

As for affecting the thread with comments, i think it is only fair to point out and discuss any repairs or modifications made to the frame.

Anyhow, good luck with the sale, shame it still doesnt have the other Ti parts as it looked really nice built up.
