1998 Powerlite Coqpit XXL

First generation Coqpit in seldom seen XXL. Powerlite built to go fast and win races.

 Originally sold at the Bike Shop in Winter Haven Florida (still in business I think) and still has their shop sticker on the frame. I picked this frame up on Ebay in January and had original plans to powder coat, but realized the beauty in all its race battle scars and warts. That being said, I just cleaned her up and set upon the task of returning this Coqpit back to the track. I wish these things could talk as I have a gut feeling this one was raced heavily when purchased new BITD. The bike itself rides so smooth, frame is very stiff, and I was able to keep it fairly light. Just a blast to ride. Enjoy.
