FS: 1987 Lotus Esprit 56cm, Pearl Coral, 600EX SIS, excl cond

1987 Lotus Esprit
Size: seat tube 56cm center-to-top; top tube 57cm center-to-center
Serial #: Y6C1811
Frame: Series 7000 Aluminum
Fork: Tange #2
Color: Pearl Coral
Components: Shimano 600EX SIS, including pedals
See last photo for complete specifications
Originally came with a white seat which the original owner replaced for comfort.

Beautiful bike, barely ridden - according to original owner only 3 times - always stored indoors, and ready to ride. There are a few small chips in the paint but a minor cleaning and detailing would make this bike look almost new. See last image for complete specifications.

$350 plus shipping. Local-pick-up in Columbus Ohio is welcomed.

The original owner rode it only 3 times. The tires still have the small nubs from the mould vents. I haven't ridden it; it's too small for me.

Beautiful bike! (and one size too large, thankfully)

Are those the late 600EX aero brake levers? (6209?)

Yes, you're correct, the levers are BL-6209. Good eye.

Free bump for a real beauty.

Once I get mobile again and sell a few of last years projects for room in the bike cave this one will get serious consideration if no one else has been smart enough to snatch it up.

This needs a free bump.

I think this is gorgeous and only wish I had room for it. Just out of the question right now unless I break my rule about all the bikes having to fit into the bike cave. If the Technium had sold this would be mine. Seems like the market has really tanked.
