I have been looking for information about this bike for a long time now. I couldn't find anything except for someone in France who owned a K2 Comp 71 Ultralight and a Swiss brochure of these K2-bikes from 1996. Not a lot :cry: . Even the K2 company could not give me any information... :? If you have any information, please tell me!!

Because of the framenumber I suspect it to be from 1990 (framenumber: 9011000). It also has a complete XT-set from that time. I allmost have all the parts ready for a complete period correct build and will start with it in a few months. Hopefully it will be finished before the summer.

Cheers,
Bart
