hi - here is the 2nd piece of plastic of Technique du Verre Tissé from Lyon - know as TVT
Sorry - but I love this French TVT92 bikes

This time the base was a early TVT92 Carbone frame set in "rouge", which I had gotten from an
older cycling enthusiast and classic bike collector
Refer to the my principle that every bike within my small collection has to refer to a former PRO-Bike,
I intent to build it up as a replica of 1988s Pinarello labeled TVT92 Carbone.

I like that a lot 8) Nice colour scheme.

Have my eye on clincher version of those tyres, look to fit in on this bike so I may pull the trigger.
Thanks for sharing :wink:

Yes indeed - I got the green frame set for my first quote. The seller had been the same Intention to build it up with a
Suntour Superbe Pro, but he has not enough passion to collect groupset, so he sold the framse set to me. It's in really good conditions a perfect base of the Suntour Superbe Pro PRO bike replica Project.

The groupset is nearly complete, only a Suntour Superbe Pro SP-SB00-L eatpost in 25.0mm is missing, but can substitutby a Taiwan retro looking Kalloy. Now I am looking for a corresponding jersery (see my Wanted -Thread) and for someone who interesting to produce the missing Stickers, ecpecially the Villinger for the down tube.

But remember our conversation about the painting - I think they couloured (not painting) the carbonfibre green too.

sorry I haven't no other pics - they are from Franjo

Sorry No I disagree the frames were sprayed what ever colour & then lacquered. Just look at the Lemond ones! no way is the carbon coloured.

The Green on the seat tube & the rear Seat stays Is Sprayed on Paint.
Maybe the Lacquer is tinted Green? or maybe the gel coat is coloured.
Look where the paint / lacquer is is chipped & you will see black underneath.
I've had well over 20 of these throughout my hands as I used to sell them new in the shop. Plus I've never seen a coloured piece of carbon even in the factory here on the IOW where the stuff is manufactured, its always been black.
But I will ask a few of my friends that work on the manufacturing at SP Systems / Gurit & get them to check if they now make coloured carbon. as these frames are 25 plus years old.

it is all paint , gelcoat is a completely different product usually for styrenated resins (eg polyester and vinylester laminates), it is tinted clear and solid colour on the carbon/epoxy tubed Helvetica
