I had a friend pick it up from a seller 340 miles from me. I initially thought it was a 1997 from the cranks. But as I get more information on it, it seems to be a 1993 that was updated with newer parts later on.

Not entirely sure what year it is yet, heck, not even sure its a bonty till i see t. My bud's a great guy, but he is a dumb ass with a camera. Ive already asked for a big favor getting this thing picked up, sothe pics below are all i get till the favor wears off :)

Condition wise, my bud says the paint is bright, has some chips and scratches, but nothing major. This is all Ive got thus far. I wont be getting the bike until I visit him in 3 months.

These pics I got from the seller via email.

April can't come soon enough. Would appreciate any advice on tell tales on how to date it and confirm that it is a race lite.

Thanks for looking!

It's a Race Lite too, you can tell by the externally milled head tube. Good score, very nice frame.
