Somewhere back in 1996 I built this frame. It has all the earmarks of something a bit earlier such as Cinelli cast lugs and Shimano vertical dropouts.....stuff I haven't seen for sale in a long time. Nevertheless, my records show that this frame was indeed built in 1996, just before I moved to my present location. A friend bought it from the second owner and it appears to be all original down to the 8 speed Campagnolo Chorus gruppo. The original owner bought the frame unpainted as he had a painter other than the one I used in mind.
