De Rosa frame and fork

I have only one picture.
I don't even know for sure if it is a De Rosa.
The seller said the frame was never built.
Any idea of the model, year, evaluation?
thanks

Interesting. If it was never built then why is the fork assembled with a HS?

The decal looks like it may say "Endurance".

There is scant info on those.

I give up on the guy.
Anyway, after three days, the deRosa was not anymore available. The other frames were overpriced

Thank you for the reply.
Unfortunately the frame is not available anymore. Probably he sold it to somebody else.
Also in the picture I can see it with the head set included.

Yes it does. I have all the cats from 92-99 except 98. No geometry info, unfortunately. I just bought the 50cm xl superlegera. Hope it fits me.

Dang, lucky! If you ever get the chance to scan them let me know. I've only seen one Giordana brochure and would love to see the rest.

You should love the Superlegerra, they are great bikes!
