It looks exactly like S. Kelly's bike in the book 'The Competition Bicycle' from Jan Heine, but with more white and with brake cable routing through top tube instead of along toptube. Steerer mentions 'SL' (yes, I did already completely disassemble it), so I think it uses SL throughout the frame. I would think it is earlier than the 1991 season bike in Heine's book.

The bike came with Campagnolo C-Record. One rim is a very trick Ambrossio 'team edition'. It is blueish anodished and there is gold coloured plate with "Brev bla bla" positioned around the valve. Never seen this. No pics yet. I like the idea of a pic together with its contender Panasonic PR-6000 8)

Spring is coming, so people are buying new bikes and trading in their old bikes. The Concorde was traded in last weekend at a small local race/MTB specialist.

Back in the day a large bikeshop in my neighbourhood acquired many of the old PDM teambikes, so probably it is one of those lots.

I already had the Concorde panto'ed ensemble, so that should make a nice match --->

Yes Melvin please show us the frame :D
The Gruppo looks great, I am sure it will be another stunning build, like your others.
The Aelle one would do my low end budget, but either short people dont sell their bikes and/or manafacturers only seem to have made very limited quantities of small frames. :cry:
Alright for you taller gentlemen but slightly frustrating for us who are vertically challenged :wink:

Hmm... I wouldn't buy it. It spot Record cranks, but that is about everything interesting the pics unveil. Frame uses Aelle tubing, what is not so high end. I am not impressed by its condition or overall appearance also.
