Hi,
Let me introduce my new sunn :D

The frame is an exact ti made by morati in 1997 for sunn, the fork is a sunn obsys carbon (thanks to biocandy) and the rest of the components is very classic with xtr m950 parts and syncros stem and seatpost.

Here is a pic of the bike :

I recently put on it a set of new wheels with new 217 rims which were supposed to be made for racing teams :

Normaly I prefer mavic cd rims but those are great with the ti color :|

+1

Where did you see the frame for sale?

I've always though that Syncros stems look too chunky for the frame, but each to their own.

I love my Sunn, racing it in a weeks time 8)

Hi Mike,

The frame was for sale here in France on trocvelo : I took a ticket from Lille to Paris to collect it :lol:

Better than it seemed on pics of the ad because all stickers were covered by a plastic film with a mix of glue and dirt.

You are right about stem they are quite massive. Actually, the stem is a black syncros, not the best for the look but better for my back :lol:

Image

I'm buiding a sunn maxe with a brute performance cromo stem, it fits great with the frame and more retro :D :D :



Enjoy your sunns :D
