1988 Cycle Craft Pro XL

My dream race bike

Old build started in 2010 around the MXR hubs when i found them cheap on CL. For the story, i was confirmed they belonged to our french superstar Eric Minozzi (World and European champion, he even raced in USA in early 90's) So then i tried to mount all my favorite parts from that period (first owner bought the frameset in november 1988, i still have the invoice and og padset) I just never found a 1st gen ELF zipback seatpost, but Revcore one is nice as well. Submitted here in 2012, improved in 2014, and i made the very last change last year. Only thing i'm still not happy with is the paint, it's well done and close to og but not exactly the same and a bit thick, i'll make it repainted some day...

Re: 1988 Cycle Craft Pro XL

Thanks. You're right, i found so many cut bars so had these extenders made. Very helpful.
