    Does this look like a $50 frame to you?

    GOD I love eBay! Tange Prestige Superlight DB tubing. Cool looking strut that goes through the downtube and is mated to the headtube. Beautiful paint job, and nice consistent welds. In its day this thing must've cost about $800, if not, more. This is brand new...$50! This will begin its life as a single speed, and probably remain as such untill its death. I'll post pics when the complete bike is done.

    Does anyone know anything else about these frames? I know Joe Lawwil raced one back in the day(97 or 98), but thats it.
