The first aero / tear drop shaped tubes even before the Colnago Oval CX. Has aero seat tube, down tube and rear seat stays & bridge.
I am the second owner and bought complete bike in 1988. Last year, I sourced the original decals and replaced some to restore the frame yet keep it’s originality. It has some patina, but considering it’s a 38 years old – in excellent condition.
Includes original Dura Ace AX bottom bracket, Tange aero headset and seat post bolt. I will also include the adaptor to mount gear levers.
If you’re reading this, you likely know about the Shimano AX series and how it revolutionized aero components forcing Campy to innovate. Shimano rarely sold complete bikes. They had Tange develop this tubing and badged a few of them in Shimano livery to display complete bicycles in trade shows and major bike shops. The original owner bought this from Richmond Cycles – London where it was a shop front display for a year.
Selling due to relocation / space constraints. I’ve parted out the bike, but still have some components I’ve listed separately. To build full bike, other AX series components can be sourced from eBay.
Seat tube: 54 cm. Seat post 26.8 mm.
