I've never really been taken with Alpinestars frames until I first saw one of these. I find it really aesthetically satisfying, especially built up like in the third picture. If there was a steel version I'd have yet another bike on my wanted list.

yup, unfortunately they never made the steel version of this one... :(


I found this on some swiss classifieds site (expired ad)

Looks like it could be steel?

Sorry, just found this from '92 catalogue

kingoffootball : lets put it on wanted list :lol:

A 1991 steel Xross was listed on Ebay a couple of weeks ago, but was withdrawn from sale fairly quickly. It looked beautiful too, I hope someone on here got it. I was all geared up for bidding, but it's probably good it didn't come to that, as I'm meant to be reducing the number, not increasing it.
