So to clarify -

mid to late 80's brake cable in the top tube
mid to late 80's gear cables route through the BB

Therefore my Prestige should date mid to late 80's.

I thought the cutout 'R' in the BB was a newer feature - obviously i am mistaken and it would date early 80's.

This is possibly a step forward. I have some brochure details but i cannot look at them on this PC but it gives the groupsets available on the road bike - one Campag and one Shimano. I think the Campag group was the Chorus RS group which a helpful RBer (thanks Paul) dated to 1992 and the Shimano was DA with Sti levers - i cannot access the doc to check exactly which one.

I am pushing my Prestige into the 90's but perhaps it was raced in the late 80's prior to being released to the public - this is where is has gotten complicated without some pics of the bike with a race team.

Any help would be appreciated - as always.

Richard

Out of interest I weighed my frame and with the headset and forks its about 2.4KG

Typically without the lugs and headset they are about 1.9 for SL, a lot of the sites show weights for tubes only and not complete frames.

I would be inetersted to hear if anyone else has a weight for the frame and the tube tyoe ?

Steve,

I will be able to weigh mine during the week but not at the moment as i can't get to it - my wife's car is in our garage and the frame is in the attic!!! I will try and get it weighed this week. I should say my forks are heavy.

Richard

Steve,

Here are pics of mine -

http://s1290.photobucket.com/albums/b52 ... 0Prestige/

I find it hard to see the difference in the dropouts on the links above although i am tired!

My rear spacing seems to have been 126mm although it appears that this was changed - see pics of the dented chainstay.

This 126 spacing is what seems to make it older than late 80's but i stand to be corrected.

Richard

Will Richard ever find out when his frame was made - What the colour was - What type of decals did it have and what spec' was on the bike.

Ian.
