1995 DK Legend

(SOLD) Frame is one of the first (and last) Legends built in the Kastan factory.

Got this frameset from Bill at DK in the mid-to-late- 1990s, but have forgotten the exact year. I knew Bill(y) and his family back in the 1980s when his dad was just starting the company. Frame is one of the first built by Linn Kastan (Redline founder) at his factory in Mexico. Has cable bosses for canti brakes, which were already passé when this frame hit the market. DK changed the bike for V-brakes soon after. Frame was originally chrome. I had it powder coated orange at the Yeti factory in Durango. DK stem S&M bars DK grips Shimano DX V-brakes WTB Grease Guard headset DK seatpost (factory sample) DK Seatpost clamp Selle Italia Flite saddle Araya Super 7X rims/DT spokes w/red alloy nipples/Shimano DX cassette hubs (built by Shimano) Primo Street tires DK platform pedals Profile cranks w/DK 46T chainwheel

Re: 1995 DK Legend

Thanks it was. 100% OG to the day I built it. A time capsule from the mid-1990s. Just traded it for a JMC frame, though. Don't miss it, yet. It was nice though.
