The Kestrel was red when I got it. I think all Kestrel frames came with a painted to match fork. Pretty sure though that the ones that were sold separately were all clear coated.
Unfortunately the Elite Shape wheel is 700c and takes Softride 650c.
I forgot to mention I picked up this. It's a 2003 Koga Full Pro Mono. I had this frame before. It was actually one of my first (road) bikes. I had it painted in the color scheme of Leontien van Moorsel's bike.
When I bought the frame it was built up. The whole bike looked as good as new and it wasn't very expensive, so I didn't bother to inspect it thoroughly. I probably should have done so, because there is a (chain suck?) damage on the bottom of the frame...
Taped the bars. Had to stretch the tape quite a bit to make it all the way. Really happy with the result.
A bike store nearby had these up for sale for next to nothing. As usual I couldn't resist.
This might turn into one of those builds that starts with a single component.
Most silly bike purchase ever
This looks fun! Any plans of putting some ridiculous wheels on it?
Haha whoa, that looks like it will have or nearly have pedal strike while riding along fully upright?
Do not lean and pedal ever.
Plan is to keep it as it is, for a change. Pretty sure I will fail at that though. So who knows ;)
Pick up only unfortunately and 5 hours drive away.
If you are keen on it I can pick it up and ship it to you no problem. Just send me a DM ;)
Thanks for the offer! But to be honest I have to many things on my mind right now, bike builds among others, to take on another project.
I still haven't finished the tandem build. Also, I am hoping (trying) to buy this. And finally I am thinking of buying a bamboo frame for these guys.
