Very nice indeed, but is that frame not a Conquest Elite?
Had one just like that BITD with Tange Switchblade forks & was definitely a Conquest with the box tubes while the Killi had round tubes.
BTW I'm no Sacacen expert, if they did both frames in box section what were the differences?


I belive the Conquest was Bare polished alloy, Mine is silver painted and was bought as a Kili Elite, Neilll is the man who knows the facts, I know he been seeking a conquest for 15 years :wink:

Yeah mine was polished frame, stupidly sold it to buy my first car :cry:
Was polishing the only difference or did the Conquest have extra butted tubes or even a different grade of alloy?

Looking forward to seeing this build completed 8)
BTW got an M735 XT bottm pull 34.9 band front mech, pm me if that's any good to you.

Just out of interest, my FSA Pig headset/jumping off sea-defences on Fleetwood seafront cracked the headtube on my Avalanche - how did you repair it?

I bought it on ebay and it turned up with the pig and the cracks :twisted: I got a partial refund and had a mate weld it who fixes racing cars. I am going to see how it goes when all mounted up with correct steerer as to whether it needs some extra work as the old alloy is easily torn.

I dont want this to be a garage queen, would really like to revive and get it on the trails 8)
