This frame is almost NOS (built up but never ridden) and has some interesting details. Supposedly was one of Corratec's first bikes and was handmade in Italy (likely by Sannino?). Original price was in the realm of $2000. Frame and fork weigh 5.4 pounds.

If anyone has any history on early Corratecs, especially the parts build on this, I'd love to hear it.

Current plan is "murdered out" lightweight singlespeed.

I'm guessing '89 - '90. The shop it came from said it was one of Corratec's first bikes, and as far as I'm aware, Corratec was born in 1990.
