Just found RB forum, its got to be good if there is real STEEL on there.
I thought I'd share my ride with you all. Bought the frame 4 years ago from Geoff at matuzmaster in Hungary, now www.t-trader.eu he had/has some tasty stuff and he is a nice bloke.
I built it with Shimano 600 EX 6 speed.
AX stem and post,
Turbo saddle,
3TTT bars,
Ambrosio rims
Biopace cranks.
The frame was a little chipped so I touched it up with best match, re columbus stickered it then re lacquered it to a nice end result.
Rides nice and corners very well due to the short wheel base.

If anyone knows how to date it or owt like that, please tell.
Thanks

Can't say I like the brake levers either, but that frame is something else! Denti frames are very rare and so are road (not tt frames) with a bent seat tube. Very nice!
