This is my first thread so I probably will do something wrong, I apologize. Picked up this frame on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I am debating about whether to sell it or build it up, and if I go with the former it would be much a much easier task if I knew more about the frame. The seller told me he got the frame from his buddy, who got it from the original owner, for whom the frame was a custom job. This frame has been repainted at least once so there are no decals (obviously). 57cm c to c seattube and top tube.
This frame has four distinguishable characteristics. First the seat cluster. As you can see in the picture the seat bolt goes through both of the seatstays. Second, the bottom bracket shell is cut out: three horizontal lines. Third, on the fork, on the right side only, there are two circular textured rings. They wrap around the fork. Very subtle so I can't photograph. One is right flush with the crown lug and the other is below halfway. Just a series of lines like IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII (wraping around the fork). And finally the frame has Campagnolo dropouts and fork ends. I know there is nothing too conclusive here but if anyone maybe has a similar frame let me know.
The hardware on the frame is not original. Bottom Bracket is Italian threaded. I can't think of anything else now but feel free to ask questions.
Thanks for the replies folks. The question is not really whether or not I should keep it, as I cannot really afford to do so. Just curiosisty you know. I thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone had experience with a similar frame.
It is the frame on NYC CL though. I am selling this along with my Panasonic Team Europe I. If there is anybody that knows anything more give a shout.
