I wanted to respray it in a nice retro paint job so decided to go for the famous Belgium rally car colours - Belga red and white- with the same typeface the team used on the car.

Nice build and loving the colour scheme!

96 kili's were v brake and therefore didn't make use of the noodle. Also the 96 catalogue shows them to have the ritchey cupped style drop out.

There is a link to a 96 kili comp resto below :D

Just looked at the close up pics of the frame and indeed it looks like it is a kili.

I think I can see a ribbed downtube suggesting tange ultimate ultrastrong?

It looks like a 93 or maybe 94 kili xtr frame:

Is that the one on e-bay that had the stuck seatpost? Was it collection only from the Wirral? I nearly bid on that and was gutted when it went for 99p. Looks really great and i'm happy you got it. :D
