Here we are. Just received a great Morati HC 1.3, possibly made in 1997.
Stripped down cause it had a mix between LX and bare Deore.
The frame could be from 1997, july, according to BB serial).
Dressed with a complete XTR m950-952 group.
Something isn't really correct (forks, saddle, seatpost, stem and bar) but my primary target is to ride it, now.
Could be better with its own Morati fork. I must search one.

lovely indeed

are you sure its not a later frame maybe from 2000 or 1999.

it shows the very distinctive flat "link" between the bottom bracket and the chainstays that was also on morati built sunns of this 2000 year. :idea:

Earlier sunn morati frames has a usual shape

dating this frame was my concern, indeed

here is a BB shot, from below,

youcan see first digits:
9729, could be 29th week of 1997?

otherwise, two digit after "shs" may be production year?

i'm still a little confused about it...
:D
