That's truly a shame. I binned the 92 (red) frameset after I ripped the seat tube (in an attempt to wrench out the stuck seatpost...).
Update (April 6th 2021).
My intention was to have this collection finished by March 1st but I failed (unforseen non-bike expenses and Covid-troubles). But delay is not cancellation and after all, this anniversary can last 365 days.
And there's some good news too! On Retrobike I was following the thread of someone building a Look Mi90 (the more expensive "brother" of my Mi80). When he took the (very hard) decision to cancel the build and donate the frame to a fellow RB-forum'er, I sacrificed myself. The frameset arrived today and it LOOKs fantastic. Thinking of going era correct on this one (not entailing excessive costs).
From the 1991 Look Catalog: the MI 80 and Mi 90 (steel version; there also was a carbon version)
In the flesh
Very much here for this thread, loving it so far
Scott Windriver colours are
Looking forward to seeing the PR6000 build
@EstelleGetty : yes, that PR6000 is my unicorn but on the other hand it gives me headaches. You can follow the thread here
Thanks! Need to mount a set of gear cables and the Mi90 is ready to roll.
Edit. Finished the Mi 90. Went for a period correct build: Shimano XT 7 speed groupset, Ritchey Logic brakes and levers, Ritchey Vantage Expert rims, Gripshift SRT 500.
