Thanks, itís my one and only titanium frame. I have no idea who made it for William Lewis, only that it was made in the US. At the time I purchased it, I already had two aluminum and a steel QA. Bill calls me one day and tells me to come up and check out the new titanium frames. This was back in 1994/95. I took a look at them and thought they were very well made and the price was right, so I bought one with the special flip flop paint, took it home and promptly put it in storage until 2007/8 when I finally built it up with the 7800 DA group.

After 7800 series, I did not care for the styling and other than my BMC SLT01 with SRAM 10 speed Red group, Iíve moved on to 11 speed Campy - Athena, Record, SR.

Another guy likes Mapei color with Dura Ace 7700

I changed the bars, but the bike doesn't look changed
