1983 Tioga Rhino Charge

Tioga Rhino Charge. The one with no gusset in the Rhino line up.

Tioga Rhino Charge made by Tange has the unique tapered tubing and aero rear chain stays. 
19.5 TT this a long and lightweight frame. This Frame and fork have been through three make overs and finally got it to where I was happy with it.
The Tioga Maxflo forks are just like Tange ARX but with a better designed drop out. 
Built with a Tioga/ Tange/ Shimano theme which were avaliable in the Tioga catalog from 1983. The only difference being the rare Vitus Alloy roller bearing head set, The shogun II seat (which will be replaced when a Kashimax blue comes avaliable) and the Powerlite Pro Bars. I did have the Tioga stamped bars but felt cramped with the sweep back.
