Looks like a Litespeed...PsyDoc

with no decals. I think that is one of Litespeed's seat collars, but it's hard to tell from the photo.
very good detective work - year?nmthe bull

ugly yellow decals whereever you go.Lightspeeds and Treks hate them really!Always liked steel.
But got such a good deal on the bike.
And after all it does ride damn well!
I may get another C40 and paint it celeste with Bianchi on itDougSloan

Seriously. I like the frame, but I like celeste and I'm loyal to Bianchi. I think it would be a crack up, seeing if people could guess what it is. Those HP stays are sort of a give away, though.

I was considering having my Steamroller painted celesteJS Haiku Shop
Mar 27, 2003 7:01 AM
...with the Surly decal kit and a nice clearcoat. the only problem with the Surly frames is the decals were applied over the paint, and now they're peeling. if i do this i may also have another set of bottle braze-ons applied, and perhaps cable guides atop the top tube for the rear brake.

I also enjoy celeste and think it would improve the look of my ss/fixie. chromed fork crown and right chainstay would also be nice touches.
