not tet built, japan tange. I think tom only did the mt tam in this era but could be wrong. if the bb shell has been tapped out....good luck with that as its an 88mm wide shell
(well it is on mine anyway)
just for historical information this model procaliber (if it is a procaliber) was issued to the teams in 87 and 88 (I raced in '87 and '88 for the fisher uk team as a 'junior class racer') which effectively meant we were given the cast offs from the elite racers, bikes, kit ect. the team was ran by an Australian guy called greg who was director of bike uk (a bike shop chain in the 80's.) I worked in the Acton branch in London as a mechanic.
bike uk were the sole importers also selling cannondale and specialized as well.
back to the bike, the frame should be Tange prestige quad butted with an ovalised seat tube where it meets the bb shell (this one is) but the 87 hookooekoo looked the same, same u brake, same oval seat tube shot in seat stays but was made from true temper ox tubing. the rhino stem on the procal was flatter than the hkek but it would be relatively easy to fake one. (look at my tribute build)
gut feeling tells me this one is legit, the paint fades were in different places according to the frame size, for example where the black goes to red on the seat tube on an 18 inch it is between the bottle bosses, but on a 20 its below the bottom boss, the reason I think this one is genuine is A, whats the point in faking one now? theres no market for it you would be better trying to fake a dogs or a yo, B, the decals, they are right, right font, right patina, right size ect. you cant buy the decals, anywhere, I had to get mine from gil who had to draw them from scratch based on photo's I sent him and that was 3 month ago.
Vernier will tell the truth on this one, however its all a bit moot as it wont sell and will be relisted at 180bin in a months time
and no, I wont be buying it, Ive discovered my fsr ground control
