i beg your pardon it is steel alloy . , ive just been reading a comparison to 853 and its even lighter. I remember reading about one of these in the 90/s < fast/comfortable tourer,handling pin sharp > what, stuck in m mind at that time was that the frame had 753/653 and 531 tubes..i looked at the price shook my head and forgot about them ... untill this topic !
The above needs some serious thinking about...makes no sense.
