Frame arrived today
Fair bit of paperwork with it too that the seller didn’t mention
Also a set of wheels
Mavic 232’s with dx hubs.

Have forks arriving in the next few days then it’s in the lookout for rest of the parts needed.
Be on the look out for Dynatech seatpost and stem to start with.
Will go well with the rest of em.

Very nice and will really match the lineup you have....
Always fancied one of these and have a full DX groupset awaiting a frame when I get round to sourcing one.
Looking forward to seeing your build ...

the white of the frame will be getting fresh paint and the forks done to match.
The bb was near fused onto the shell of the frame :facepalm:
But all removed and threads n bb cleaned out.

Pretty cool bikes, 3 main tubes are Titanium, iirc, Bonded into alloy lugs, with a Cro-mo rear triangle. I think in the USA they had the Technium range?

Anyway, it looks in good condition, looking forward to seeing it built up :D
