That bike is a 1" steerer or I would have offered more. And I would have offered more if the paint wasn't as chipped as much as it is and I would have offered more if there wasn't any rust in the tube. It can surely be built as is but to do it proper you still have to invest more capital even if keeping original paint
Yes this bike has been ridden, raced, its not a dust queen at my house. There are some wore areas from cable rubbing and scratches and paint chips. Fat Chance did lay down a nice thick, multiple paint coatings on this and that is probably why it looks as good as it does.
I have more photos if anyone is interested. The rust is not bad at all on this frame. Its very dry in Colorado so moisture dries faster than it can start rusting on the frame. I am not saying this frame is perfect but it is in excellent condition for a 22 year or race bike.
Yes would like to see how bad any chain slap is or chain suck(close up?) Also bottom of bb and downtube.(close up please) seat tube rust if you can get it. Ir dont look like the green protector is on the clamp (to me anyway)Thanks. Not trying to put bike down. Just being careful. Pm if you like so we don't have to do it on thread. Aron
