Have you looked at Rekiborters website. www.parkpre.com

He has a magazine review scanned http://www.parkpre.com/reviews/Pro%20Elite%201994.pdf

Also another one here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=83544

I assumed all of them to be made by Litespeed

According to:

http://www.parkpre.com/reviews/Pro%20Elite%201994.pdf

The 94 frames are made in Taiwan.

I've seen a bunch with the Litespeed sticker though so that might be the first year they went offshore.

I think I like it in the earlier pics without the decals. But still a very LUSH build! :wink:

@ Vitorzip
nice build! I love all the red parts. I also like the Tioga Psychos in combination with a grey titanium frame, i have a Litespeed Obed equipped with them.
