Another Ti Bike in my fleet…
But, before showing pictures, I have to make a list of thanking :lol:
So, thanks to Eshew for showing the frame from Californian CraigList. I think he's the main guilty for another bike at home ! :facepalm:
Thanks to Brian aka Broomhandle aka Mr vintagecannondale.com who catched me the frame and posted it to me
Thanks to Everybody who sold me Mac Mahon parts : Alasa, Newsboy and Black Panther
Thanks to Futuristicoldman who sold me half of his Mc Mahon project
And thanks to Mojo Ti who bought the other half Futuristicoldman's McMahon project :mrgreen:

Now, pictures !

I remember seeing one of these some time ago, wasn't it GT Steve who had one? I think these are lovely.

lovely and loving that fork. I used to want one of these but eventually went to ibis, both cool ti brands. I guess youre now looking out for some cranks?

I have a ti clark kent that would look pretty similar to this, I mostly need to just find the time to put it together.

I think keeping the XT crankset and not going for some MRC… it's not the good year.
I think the frame is older than 91 : it's a press fit BB like first generation Fat Chance.
I love the idea of classic Shimano parts on it.
For the fork I would hope to find the first generation steel crown/bounded ti legs.
But I'm really happy with that 2nd generation :D
