1997 Powerlite XXL

*SOLD* Ask Danny and Chuck...

Okay, it's one thing to be factory-sponsored and have a one-off frame custom-built for you, but it's totally different to have something that is hard to come by among a population of pedestrians and wannabes.  This '97 XXL has a 21"tt, and I have yet to come across one like it on the Museum or out in the world.  I keep seeing P51s, P61s, and XLs with 20.63"tts, or else P-Lites with 21"tts that are either from another year or from another year AND made in Taiwan (yuck).  Am I sheltered?  Perhaps, but I will tell you this:  She's made in the States, and she's got some of the nicest beads this side of Big E.  I have some Powerbends for her, but need some P-Lite cranks (Profiles or CPIs -- it really doesn't matter) along with a P-Lite XXL stem.  Then I'll build her with love, and my childhood dream will come to fruition.
