Well, it appears to be a frankenbike in a fashion I'd be likely to assemble. I swear I recognize that paint scheme but can't place it.

Unfortunately I think your frame looks like so many other frames of the era that many builders were producing that it is going to be quite difficult to identify. The paint scheme does look to be a little unique so that might help identify it. Are there any letters or number stampings on the frame?

It does look to be a quality frame with some good components though and it is in very good condition.

My guess - early 80's frame. Best of luck.

There are no numbers unfortunatelly. And previous owner don't have any history. The frame is on gipiemme dropouts.

I've checked the suntour parts and they are from 84

Spot on but looks like mine has custom fork. Is this a good frame?
