Litespeed/American Classic Frame Question(3 posts)

Litespeed/American Classic Frame Questionswampman

A friend of mine has a frame that is labeled American Classic. He tells me it is a Litespeed that was relabeled for sponsership of a race team. It looks just like a Litespeed but with different stickers.

Does anyone have any info on a frame like this?

Thanks
Wouldn't surprise me,TJeanloz

I'd say something approaching 30% of all ti bikes are built by Litespeed. Litespeed has rebadged ti for many, many other companies, and it wouldn't surprise me if they did this for American Classic at some point. That said, I can't recall a pro team that was ever sponsored by American Classic (at least not for frames).

I don't know about a pro team, but I remember a Bicycle Guide review of an American Classic frame that was a re-badged Litespeed. This was probably 6-7 years ago.
