Yes, you're right! e-stay and steel... 8)

It's not a Haro, but a Cycle Tech Aspen. I believe it's from 1991 (by serialnumber).

I cannot find any information on the web of this brand or model. I believe there were a lot of "Aspen" models made bij Cycle Tech (e-stay or diamantframe).

The bike has been used. All the parts were in terrible condition, but the frame is structurally sound and complete with the original seatpost and stem. And I really like the colour... British Racing Green.

Here are some quotes...

All right! Cool project. Was their top model not the "Nova Pro"?

I like the mono seatstay on it as well. What frame material is used?

Note to self: do not build a wheelset sitting next to a campfire and drinking red wine
