Yours is 'Handmade by' and mine is 'Designed By', my understanding is that the Handmade is US built, the designed is Taiwan built. Either way they look to have the same Dedaccai tubing. :D

The former owner was a personal friend of Tom,..he told me it was his.

I wanted to know what some other parts do to this bike
replaced the stem by a black one, binned the seatpost, burnt the saddle, melted the barends, burried the cranks and locked the fork

the angle of the frame is now much better
Found out that the Ritchey seatpost was not made in black :roll: , the black works much better with the frame then the silver parts, so i might want to try the NOS Ritchey Logic fork tomorrow first before painting it,..might work with the black parts

I'll 2nd that. I found i needed a layback post for mine due to the short toptube. I was originally spec'ing a Syncros, but went for the layback of the XTR 8)
