American simply made the sweetest Aluminum Frames for this era..

I think if it was 1990 and I was able to purchase any new frame within reason, I would have been swayed by A Comp Lite....
Oh, wait. I was!

Great choice with that classic Bonty fork.
Beautiful build....


I dunno, looks like a bland frame with a high arse to me, well other than the nice cable guides. Nice forks though ;)

That and they mean feck all to most of us over in the UK.


Back in 1991 my wife at the time and I toured Europe for a while on our bikes including a long week in the UK. She was on her Klein (every time I buy a woman a bike we seem to split up) and I was on my American. We had brought foldable smokes for the quick change from Tour mode to trail ready. We actually got quite a few invitations to ride with locals on their favorite trails. Hands down the American got most all the attention. Blown away, nobody over there had ever seen an American before.

Pinguwin's 1990 American Comp-Lite in all its unfiled welded glory.


I'm not that good with what year stuff was available but isn't that rear mech a much more modern one? Did they make flite's in 1990? And did they come without any decals as standard?

Cheers!

I can't see the rear mech clearly but it looks like M732 to me.

I believe decals can be removed or added to a frame quite easily.
