FS(MELB)- LOOK Mi80 Retro MTB Frame Cromo Ritchey Fork Powdercoat $120
Bit of a MTB rarity for sale here.
LOOK Mi80 26” Cromo Mountain Bike frame from the 1990’s.
Triple butted Cromo, lugless internal brazing, very high quality. Not super light, but certainly much lighter than most cromo MTB’s of it era.
Comes with original Ritchey Logic 1 1/8 fork, made from Tange tubing with Tange tubing.
Brand new X15 Orange powdercoat. Frame has been sandblasted and etch primed before powdercoating.
Size Top tube 56cm c-c, seat tube 48cm c-c
English Bottom Bracket
Takes a 29mm seat post (original post included), but also included is a seat post shim to reduce seat tube to common 27.2mm seat post size.
The frame has been fully faced and chased. The bottom bracket shell and headset tube have been faced for perfect seating surfaces. All threads have been retapped, including the bottom bracket threads. I have also religned the dropouts using dropout alignment tools.
This frame came to me with original white paint (they were all white) and decals. However the paintwork was in extremely poor condition. I had plans to build this into a commuting MTB, so I had it sandblasted and powdercoated in a color that appealed to me with the help of my friend and fellow forumite fooch.
Reality has hit in the meantime and I just have too many bikes and projects, and not enough time to play with them all. If I built this up I probably would end up with just another bike that I do not ride.
