*the new pictures on page 8*

I got this frame from a dude in San Diego.. it was shipped via. my cousin in Minneapolis ending up costing me more in shipping fee' than what i payed fore the frame.

The previous owner clams it belonged to Parkpre sponsored rider "Pistol Pete" Loncarevich, he was riding fore parkpre in 1993-1995, so i assume that the frame set is from that period.

Frame as I got it:

Looking good, glad someone from this forum got hold of this! And if ever you want to sell give me a shout!

As rekiborter says, some of the details of that frame are unusual and different to other ProElites and indeed other Parkpres too. The seatube doesn't extent much past the toptube, and the seatpost size is unusual for a Parkpre. The rear dropouts are different too.

Still a nice frame though. How does it ride?

Very nice. Another Parkpre on Retrobike :D 8)

As my colleague in all things Parkpre said it has some unusual features on the frame. Any chance of doing some more detailed pictures? Maybe this is one of the Litespeed welded frames?

Still not as nice as mine.. :wink:

But I'm with Rekiborter in wondering whether it's a Litespeed. As an ex-team bike it's pretty likely that it's preproduction at the very least.

Fork ends and seattube closures are very different from the others. Is there an alloy sleeve in the seattube?
