Beautiful titanium road bike
Bought frame second hand and has no obvious makers name or stamping, dating from I think late 90 early 2000
Perfect welds, no dents or cracks.

Close clearances on brakes, and also number holder under frame headset end indicating I believe a top end race bike.
Frame size 53
Campagnolo 10 speed veloce.
Campagnolo khamsin asymmetric 700c clinchers
53/39 175 crankset
Carbon front forks.
Carbon handle bar stem.

Gears need attention, slight scuffing on right crank.

Price £700


Pick up only, Hinckley, Leicestershire

It might be a frame from a US company called Habanero. https://www.habcycles.com/road.html

Thanks Bultaco370, certainly looks similar, apart the number holder under top tube. Even sizes tally up.

When buying this I was told that the bike was originally yellow green blue, and had the name Mauritzio Appollo (not sure on spelling)
written on it, and was built with Campag Chorus. It was stripped back, but then didn't like so broke the bike down and sold separately.

Reason I never put this in the advert was I've only his word, and I didn't want to mislead anyone.

Its a beautiful ride, its just to small for me, I'm a 58 really. If it doesn't sell will keep for my daughter.
