I have a chance to look at and purchase this frame and fork but I would like to know what it is first, if possible...

Reminds me of those Titan frames sold on eBay for an extended period as they drew down the old stock, the fork is different than my memory recalls. No graphics save the painter. Same paint technique too.

Titan was my first thoughts also whatever it looks like a great frame with really nice paint so I could see paying $200 or so for it pending ID. The fork looks pretty unique and has some markings a close up of which may help with a ID.

The attached goes with the frame? So is the question who built Titans?

I think I would give 150ish for. It looks like a quality frame, the paint is solid, as well as cool.


Isn't that a Coppi fork?

Hmmm...is it just me pointing out the obvious? The drawing specifically names the frame as Titan and the fork as Coppi.

Niiiice! That will look beautiful built up (not that it doesn't already)

Agreed but a hand drawn note was not enough to fill me with confidence. That said, I will pass. I don't often buy bikes or frames with mis-matched forks.

But I am looking at something even more interesting(to me) on the weekend.
