    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.

    I have a 1989 Fuji Titanium Road Bike like this one:
    http://www.classicfuji.com/TitaniumD..._1989_Page.htm
    that I would be willing to let go of. It is similar to this one:

    Mine has yellow decals. Changes from factory include: Time pedals. Got rid of the sew up rims and instead used Mavic with dura-ace hubs. Added and Aero Bar (which needs new pads), put on a Sella Italia Titanium rail seat, added a bike computer.

    It is either 54 or 55 cm.....almost forgot to add that part.

    It has been hanging in my garage for about 10 years. I had to stop riding due to knee problems. It definitely needs CLEANING and some polishing. Probably new tires and a tune-up wouldn't hurt! I am located in Kansas City.
