Here is a retro room from 1990. 1 x set up for testing in MINT condition

SAKAE Litage Rider in pearl black / neon yellow with 80ies decor - all in great condition.
Sakae as a japanese frame builder has made a name for itself in the 80/90s with press-fitted
aluminium tubes 7. The pipes are bonded to inner sleeves by thermal bonding
a process similar to that on which the Titanal frames are based.
The process was called "Litage".

The beautifully crafted frames (inside cable lining from 1990) are famous and the Rider
is unique. In the colour combination I have not seen another one before.

The frame has nearly no signs of use, only the right rear frame is showing signs of storage
4-5 small chips and on the top tube. 2 mm diameter. Tried to make that look so good in the pictures
as possible.

The Rock Shox Quadra 10 suspension fork is also good in shot and fits perfectly to the frame.
It comes with a Shimano XT front derailleur, bottom bracket, seat post, original Pipe stem and seat post.

Size: top tube centre/middle approx. 57/58 cm, seat tube centre bottom bracket / tube end approx. 52 cm
See pictures, for body sizes from approx. 178 - 185 cm

And here is the equipment:

frames: Sakea Litage Rider - mother of pearl black / neon yellow with decoration
Fork: Rock Shox Quadra 10
Front derailleur: Shimano XT
Stem: Sakae Pipe (New)
Handlebars: Zoom
bottom bracket:Shimano

asking for Euro 330 plus shipping

Re:

Rider was the brand selling Sakae Litage frames under licence or whatever arrangement they had as several other brands of the period did with Litage frames. The Litage decals were shipped with the raw frames and not necessarily intended to be applied on Rider branded bikes.

Guys - sorry have not posted a pic of the full view. Attached now the frame itself and how it could look like ready built. Did this recently, but figured out that the size is too big for me. Needed some parts for another bike and so the frameset is ready to go for someone taller 180 cm.
To be honest - it rides great and it is really embarrassing to let it go, but that´s life.

And btw - have taken care whilst putting to the ground to take pics. ;-)
