I have a friend who has one in his garage. For $100 I'll give you the address.

That's one of the only production ti bikes I've seen that has a ti fork.

A forum member had one and sold it for north of $1k on eBay.



Randomly searching, they seem to pop up on craigslist far more frequently than on my saved eBay search.

I was surprised at that...you can get a TK Merlin for not much more than that. Outside of the ti fork, it wasn't an especially interesting bike.

They were commercially pure ti, right? Not an alloy?

Local friend has an early ti Bianchi--not sure but he might have used it when he rode RAAM several years back.
