    THAT is absolutely beautiful. I'm getting all emotional now looking at all the info you dug up for it. I used to work in a bike shop in high school and build those old DB bikes. I've got a '91 DB Ascent that I'm reworking that I've had since I was 16. Yours just lit a fire under my butt to get mine rolling for some rigid punishment this spring!

    Very nice build!

    I still have a DBR ti from that era in my garage, it's set up with fenders, and a bad paint job, and is the ultimate sleeper super-commuter. How come the catalogue is in spanish?
