Ohhh, very very nice. Assume this is Steve's old one?

Build wise M900 is a touch new although prefectly acceptably imho. I reckon a trick build would be the money for this though :D

Looking at your pictures brings back fond memories. I worked part time in a small rural shop north of Philadelphia Pennsylvania during the early 1990’s. We were one of the few shops that carried Litespeed in a wide area. We had a gentleman come into our shop one day with a magazine advertisement for Litespeed in hand. He ordered four of this same model to be built into complete bikes using M900 series components for his wife and two sons. At the time, Litespeed did not offer complete bikes as I recall, so it was up to the Shop to configure them as deemed. We purchased Mavic 231 rims for this project and gave them to a company in town that made church bells. They polished them to a near chrome like finish to match that of the frame. We used American Classic titanium seatpost, again polished to a high luster. Lastly we used Panaracer Smoke and Dart skinwall compe tires to round out the bikes. We later learned that this family kept them at their summer cabin in Maine. They were beautiful when completed as is yours.

Thanks for sharing
