A little later, around 1991 (as I vaguely recall), the senior CAT 1-2 team picked up some other sponsors including Shaklee and they began racing under a different team name and colors.

My frame came with an alloy Tange Fusion fork, but I think your frame would have originally come with a painted steel fork.

Here's the above shown frame all built up with a DA 7400 group:

The forks look at a shallow angle in the pic. Optical illusion?
On my frame,if the seller disclosed that the forks in the pic are 850 grams,probably would of been better to wait for a fork that matches the frame.
All the screws were removed except for the dropouts.
Paint not in great shape.
At least its the size I want. I have a 56cm Columbus SL frame, and I want to go to a 55.5 to get a slightly steeper seat angle. Plus the chainstays are 1 cm shorter than my Columbus frame.
