Acquired this the other week, in pretty much A1 condition apart from a few scratches on the decals, looks way way better in real life than in the photos. 1993 i believe, with full XT & Syncros bar the specced DX hubs. I think with this, the Explosif & the one day to be finished PACE, that will be it with collecting, I'll just sit back and look at everyone elses then. :D
Excuse the garden, it's being re-turfed :oops: :D

Cheers...Nick

lovely condition mate.

I've got a 91/92 stratos frame in the loft, not quite as nice as that though – cracked headtube / downtube weld and a lot of surface corrostion / pitting. I'll get her sorted at some point as being 7000 series pipe it's weldable without needing to be re heat treated.

One question, is the frame of yours bare alu or does it have a painted finish?? I spotted the performance paints sticker and it got me wondering (might be a nice way of covering the pitting on my bike if I get it powdercoated silver)

It's 1992 model year btw not 1993 ;)

and a nice example :D pretty much all upgraded from what would have been spec but the syncros and xt does make it look pretty :D

and it's a grey powder coat finish. though not sure if it uses the speckle/sparkle in the colour of the other frames of that time ?

EDIT
I would set your brakes up properly tough...
