Pics of my Eisentraut. Yes, it is for sale. I want $600 for frame fork and headset. This particular one has original paint and was made by non other than Bruce Gordon in 1975. Sport-touring geometry, room for up to 35c tires, and fender and rack mounts. 63cm seat-tube, 58cm top-tube.

60cm MX Leader - green

I'd be willing to sell frame, fork, headset and BB of my MX Leader. PM me for full details. It's too small for me as you can tell by the spacer stack and long post.

Not an MXL fork. The frame did not come with a fork so I bought this Della Santa fork from a forum member and had it painted to match the frame by Dave Cheakas at Southwest Frameworks here in Dallas.

Here's a bit more detail on the bike:
1996 MX Leader - dark green
60 cm seat tube
58.5cm top tube
17cm head tube

Good to excellent condition. I have lots of pics of this bike in all stages of it's life if you would like to see them.

Background:
I bought this frame in Praetoria, South Africa about 4 years ago from Queens Cycle. I was down there for work and stumbled onto the mother load of NOS steel Merckx. I put together a group buy and we cleaned him out of nearly 60 frames. This was the biggest frame in the shop. The frame did not come with a fork. I purchased a flat crown threadless fork, built by Roland Della Santa, from these forums and had it painted to match the frame by Dave Cheakas at Southwest Frameworks here in Dallas. The fork steerer is uncut and has a full 12cm above the headtube available.

The frame rides fantastic but I've come to the realization that it's just too small for me. Ideally I'd need something in the 64x60 range. I have no issue with the bike at all other than size. I always said the only reason I'd ever sell was if I could get something that fit better and I'm working on a custom frameset to replace this one. I need to sell this to finance the custom.

RAD oldschool colnago super frameset. I used to have one in the same size and color (kind of rare in this size) and it rode in such an awsome fashion...

nice Casati!! it's from R&A and if you go to the website you'll note that the seller has marked up the frame by $250 (50%).

a teammate of mine rode a red and black Casati w/DA 7400 stuff back in early/mid 90s... I always liked that bike
