I bought this a little while ago from a friendly Frenchman, who bought it directly from the man himself, an ex-Ludovic Dubau team bike :D
I bought it as a pretty much complete bike but made some small changes (brakes, tyres, saddle) and really like the spec and the way it looks and rides so will probably leave it as is, except maybe for some wider bars.

Thank you :) Would be great if anybody has any pics of the 99 Sunns in action.

And yes I do like my Fizik Gobis :) Its quite nice jumping on each bike and it feeling familiar.

Hey, glad you like. It wasn't cheap, but not too much more than any ti frame.

I am feeling the pressure, pretty certain I cant do it justice....but having fun trying :D
I agree the builds are pretty conservative but I have reasons for wanting each of these this way, except maybe the Exact Columbus.....might be an excuse to get myself a bare metal ti and go crazy :D

I am very jealous of you and your collection......& to own a team bike is the ultimate for a sunn collecto....I missed out on a sunn chippe team frame & ti roadie frame a number of years ago...it still haunts me.....if only... :cry:
But I love my exact ti....with matching morati forks, stem, bars...the seat post & cranks well it's just too many $$$$$$
enjoy the ride...a g8 collection of steel & ti 8)

Cheers Conrads, I think I was very lucky too. I'd love to say that this was something I'd always dreamed of owning but I never really thought about it assuming anything like this would be too rare / unubtainable, and the Revolt was my dream when I was younger.
I did wonder about going for ti bars, stem and seatpost too but I think I've spent enough on this bike for now, although I do like the look or yours...

Yes I love my sunn but it sits almost unused at present tucked away......it's winter here and I'm on my SS all that sticky mud/water I just couldn't expose my pride & joy to it all...... :lol: & I have my khs team for riding as well.

moarti stems/m-bars/seat posts are pretty hard to come by.....for reasonable $. I was lucky with my stem & bar........I'm still waiting for a post/m-bar......but what I have will do for now.

Sunns are very rare in NZ and moarti even more sooooooooo. 8)

Sunn do make extremely well proportioned frames. Quite Kona, but in some way nicer to my eye. I miss my little 1999 Sunn Totall UN soft tail.
