One of the many variations on the Verlicchi downhill frame: the Rudy Project Downhill
The year is circa 1994. In 1992 a Verlicchi (Iron Horse, Cullinan) was raced to the downhill world title in Bromont, Canada. The Verlicchi was the 1st full suspension & downhill specific frame to be successfull in competition. The frame has also been raced to world cup event wins and the NORBA cup.
Apart form that it is a frame with an interesting history, this Rudy is a delight for fans of purple 'bling'. Frame, fork, stem and post are a kit together
