    Thanks Tom. What criteria are you using? I don't know anything about the brand.

  5. Novara Bicycles -- Started by Sue Novara Reber?

    Does anyone know if the Novara brand of bicycles and accessories has any relationship, past or present, to Sue Novara Reber? Sue was one of the US top female track cyclists in the late 70s and 80s if...

    Yes, thanks, I'm ahead of you there. I did buy the correct year decals from Litespeed. They don't do their own paint jobs apparently. They referred me to Darrin Wheeler at 2Wheeler Customs. He...

    Thanks for the idea of still writing Spectrum. You're right, it can't hurt. The Classic is a nice bike and bright brushed is a cool finish. I'm leaning toward going the DIY route just to...

    Thanks for DIY advice! I'm thinking I might go that route.

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, according to their website they only do full frame re-painting. Additionally, though it doesn't apply in my case, they don't do titanium frame repair on any...

    I think so. I didn't look very long and could find the Dark Metallic Blue (PPG Ferrari Tour De France) offered on-line, but I don't think its guaranteed to be a perfect match given that my bike is...

    Hmm, that's an interesting thought. Do they make figures out of titanium? If so, they probably don't take the kind of impact our bikes do. Still, those guys must really know how to do intricate...

    I wanna join. What number am I? I have a number of late 90s - early 2000s Litespeeds that I ride or am working on (slowly).

    My wife and I are registered for RAINSTORM. We are seasoned riders, but haven't done a multi-day, multi-century tour before. We were thinking that at least one of us would have a rear rack and a...

    Thanks all! At least I know a little bit more now. It's been tough trying to find information about these frames.
  19. American Classic Ti Bikes by Litespeed -- Any Information Available?

    I recently saw a late 90s Ti bike with a "Made in the USA by Litespeed" decal. Otherwise, it had all American Classic badging. It had curved seat stays like a Tuscany, but was satin finished (not...
