Legend Ti

Well I've wanted to try a Legend Ti for a while but haven't found one that fits until now.
It's a mid 90s custom (CC63 serial number) that measures 63x59 and has the standover and stack of a typical 64.
As I've gotten older and less flexible I find that I prefer a shorter TT then in the past and the fit of this one is just about perfect for me. The original owner is a big guy so it was built with the oversize chain stays and perhaps heavier tubing throughout, which is another plus.
The condition is almost mint! Far exceeding my expectations for a 25 or so year old bike. It has a full Dura Ace 7700 build with the exception of the 7410 crankset/BB (my all time favorite) and CK headset. I added the Flite Trans Am saddle, 7401 pedals and a 0 degree Control Tech stem, from the parts bin, replaced the cables and housing and wrapped the bars and it's ready to go.
Much to my surprise, as it sits with "nothing fancy" wheels it tips the scale at 19.5lbs.
I can't wait for the road salt to clear a bit so I can get some miles on this.

-Bob

Looks like it's in phenomenal condition for the age of the bike. I don't think you will be disappointed in waiting to find the right Ti Legend to fit. I had one for a brief period of time that didn't fit and I still think about how well it rode. Enjoy, once the roads clear-up!
