In the garage has arrived another frame legendary! 8)
I got this frame together with the Mantis profloater II, by the same owner and at least 17 ​​years to collect dust in the attic! :facepalm:
It is not the original color, but it was repainted it seems to me in 93/94 when it came out this color team racing, originally it was all gray so probably 1992, the serial number is A526 I seem to remember, is located in the rear dropout SX in the internal part.
The frame has no cracks or blows, the paint in several places is skipped, she had been painted with an airbrush and therefore not a professional job, but I'm undecided whether to repaint it again or leave it as it is lived now!

I also picked up more catalogs of the period :lol:

original decals for possibly repaint

Nice collection off parts

but i hate the build, to rushed with no co-ordination. odd tires., odd group, mixed bag off everything.

but if that's how you enjoy it, go for it.

:D
