My source on litespeed built was a guy who worked at litespeed, and said litespeed based on the welds, stays and drops. He could be wrong. It definitely wasn't on par with other Litespeeds I've touched, and it certainly shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as merlin. FWIW, I'd much rather have your 753.

If memory serves, I sold mine for 1600ish, and it took forever to find a buyer.

id be interested to hear more. I had heard a completely different thing- that they were made by THT in spain - but I can very easily be wrong. I wonder if the kg292 and the kg282 might have different makers and thus the confusion.

I'm not sure enough to say...and litespeed may have sold bits to someone else. I think mine was a kg292. I'll try and find the thread and/or photos.

Annapolis; is that not where Velo Orange is headquartered? Actually this is Severna Park. And the VO founder is real keen about Motobecane Jubilees:
Motobecane Jubilee Bike Frame $100; frame and components only.
Jubilee Sport actually.

Kind of nice Fuji racer out of Boulder: $350 Fuji Racer , chromed headtube lugs, some chrome on the seat stays at the cluster.

I just found a nice Fuji for myself; I guess I can skip the police auction now.
