No antique, but a classic lugged titanium. 93 Miyata team. Took it for a shakedown ride and got it dialed in.

1972 Favorit Lovonit

I recently picked up a 72 Favorit also badged as Lovonit. A friend researched and believes the frame is french made. All components and the frame are stamped made in Czechoslovakia, either Favorit Special or Favorit Lovonit. Serial Number is 010893. Appears to have a circle with a P in it between the year and the serial number. Any info would be appreciated. Will post picture when I can.

The Phil Wood Frame is nearing completion (I need a small friction bushing for the front shifter and then a touch of tuning for that). It is sitting on a vintage Park Tool PRS-1 stand.

Ignore the bit of mess and the hair tie used on the front brake. Also I know the chain is on the small chainring and larger cog the shifter is not able to stay in position.

Who was the frame builder? I've heard that Jeremy Sycip built some frames for Phil Wood but this one looks too early to be Jeremy's work.

They say they built it and unfortunately couldn't provide much info when I reached out. They did try and reach out to an old engineer who worked for them but I never got to talk to him and didn't want to bombard them with a ton of questions for this guy. This is well before the PISS OFF and KISS OFF frames and being PW was a sponsor of the team it is possible they made them, I am sure they have the equipment and skills (with Phil) to do so. However there are also a ton of builders in that area that could have been contracted.

All I know is it is a really neat frame and certainly a race frame because that rear triangle is stiff trying to get the wheel in was not easy and it was a 126mm wheel not something exceptionally wide or anything. I can't wait to put some real miles on this thing.

If anyone does know anything please please please please please share it because I am super interested.

Stunning frame, beautiful bike!

It appears that is a 63cm, which means I now need to find one. They even made their Carbon Team up to 63cm as well! Very oddly, in looking through the 1993 catalog, Carbon and Titanium Team bikes were both Shimano 105 (STI shifting and dual pivot braking, so later 1055 SC), but the steel Team Miyata was 6400-era 600. No Dura-Ace present throughout the entire lineup. I thought surely DA would have been on the Ti and CF bikes. You have upgraded yours very nicely--in keeping with the performance intentions of the frame.

Thanks. I would have left it original, but it had already been stripped and rebuilt before. I could go down a size but it's still comfortable.

Wow! So many great vintage bikes!
Here are three of my own favorites:
1989 Marinoni Special (my favorite) recently picked up the Delta brakes, love them! Always loved the way they look, with modern Kool Stop bads they work as good as they look




Not sure of this Marinoni's year

the bike is as close to pristine as you could ever want. has a full shimano xt groupset (right down to the brakepads), and all other original components (except for the ti flite, i believe). the only thing i plan on doing is getting a wider bar- this thing is NARROW! the color is billed as "raspeberry" and it's amazing in person. since this is my "sunday driver" i opted for the 1.95 kwests, instead of knobbies, since i'll probably spend 90% of the time on pavement.
...sorry for all the pics-i love photographing bikes almost as much as riding them....

Amazing vintage MTB, I believe you've got an XT seatpost there as well, very nice photo's as well!
