Looks like a Litespeed-built KHS Team Ti from 1994 to me. The scratchy looking serial number on the bottom of the b/b shell would give it away...

Yes, I agree - it looks identical to my 1995 (I believe) KHS TiLite, also Litespeed-built, also with scratchy-writing serial number.

I'd be very interested to see photos of your Team Ti incidentally.
