This frame was handcrafted right here in the USA using a classic non-sloping top tube design making use of Serotta's proprietary and revolutionary Colorado Concept titanium tubing. A lovely British Racing Green paint finish was applied to roughly half of the frame with black pinstriping and bold white "Serotta" logos throughout. The frame was built using the included Profile Design Julie RC carbon fork with alloy dropouts and threaded steel steerer. That's held in place with a Campagnolo Record threaded headset with a Shimano top nut as the original cracked (as so many alloy Record top nuts do).Size 56cm (center of BB to center of top tube) with a center-to-center horizontal top tube length of 56cm and head tube length of 14.5cm. Nice size for folks in the 5'9 to 6' range depending upon your needs and preferences.
A throwback to recent but truly simpler times, this Serotta Ti frame will provide years of reliable and legendarily smooth high-performance with the added ease of external cable routing! Likewise, an English-threaded bottom bracket shell will provide the perfect foundation for creak-free use. 100mm spaced fork and 130mm spaced rear dropouts mean that the possibilities are endless for your preferred build with anything from a vintage period-correct groupset all the way up to the latest 11 or 12-speed offerings. Overall condition is a conservative 6 out of 10 with typical signs of infrequent use these past 23 years such as the odd blemish from contact during use/travel/transport. Clear signs of use appear throughout, mostly from cable and tire rub and component installation with more notable imperfections highlighted in the included pics.
The frame and fork bear an overall patina of conscientious use but show no dings, dents, or significant damage to speak of. I have just completed a thorough, multi-hour cleaning and polishing of the entire package.
Bottom bracket threading is razor sharp as is the threading on the fork. All other threaded aspects such as the downtube shifter/cable stop mounts, water bottle bosses, also rear derailleur hanger also checked out 100% ready to rock for the new owner. PLEASE NOTE: The original seatpost clamp went missing in storage and is not included.
Be sure to have one on hand to complete your build (30mm size). Aside from that this frame simply needs your imagination and gruppo to make for an heirloom-quality build. Please see the included pics of the actual frameset that you will receive.
