    it's steel.

    doesnt seem as heavy as i would have expected though.. given the oversized bottom tube.

    the fork is polished aluminum

    with the exception of really cheap bikes where it's done for looks OS tubes are lighter because the walls can be made thinner without compromizing stiffness.

    1) what did the auction say?

    2) do you have any other pics?

    3) Is anything stamped? (ie. the bottom bracket or fork ends)

    yup.
    Ruud's is a bike shop in Hilversum

    says so right on the frame
    give 'em a call: 035 - 6857227
    It's not unusual for a shop to have a resident framebuilder.

    seller's pic.

    i'll take some more pics when it's built up. polished up a rough set of 75's and they look like new.. with the polished fork, 3T stem,(and assorted other goodies) blue anodized gran compe "carnival" hubs, and some silver mavic hoops, she's gonna look pretty slick.

    tomorrow i'll see whats up with stampings.. there's nice shimano drops (or ends, or whatever they are "supposed" to be called)
