    Origin of a Frame?

    Hello Everyone!

    I recently picked up a bike where the owner didnít know the origin of the frame they had in their possession. The bike was painted by Joe Bell here in San Diego back in 1988. I was hoping Joe had some records on the frame but no luck. Iíve attached some detailed photos in the hopes that there might be some distinguishable characteristics that someone would recognize. There are no hints of a serial number and if there was they've been painted over. Strangely the bike has Campy dropouts in the front and Shimano SE in the rear. I'm okay with my mysterious bike but there's a small part of me that wants to know what it is....

    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    had to look at it for a minute but I didn't make it. Considering moving this to C&V where there might be some people that are more expert in such things
