I read mr K's Explosif thread with interest as here's my "barn find" Explosif. Bought on a hunch from a fuzzy picture on the web, it turns out to be a time warp 90's classic. Original bar the rear tire, but complete with dog collar, Joe's clips and a full DX gruppo. Used as intended but well cared for, just some of the decals went awol.
From the wisdom in that other thread it's a 91: solid single colour paint job, check, braze-on seat clamp, check, ovalised and tapered top and down tubes, check, bulging seat tube at the BB shell, check. Cannot see the frame number could it be under the cable guide on the BB shell?
Enough talking, here's the "as received" pictures: (current pictures half way on page 2)
