Not sure how we feel about this.
It’s an interesting and unusual bike, to say the least.
(Note that the auction is for the frameset only.)
A chance to purchase a rare ‘DuPont’ paint scheme Rossin Professional in Columbus Max tubing!
I purchased it unridden but it had been built up at some point, so it does have some lightly chipped paint on the dropouts, front derailleur lug, one on the head tube and one underneath the chain stay.
There’s some minor shop wear as well but any marks are out of sight or quickly forgotten once built up.
I had it built with a modern/vintage mix of parts but it hasn’t been ridden enough so it’s time for someone else to enjoy it and actually ride it! (Preferably with it’s period correct Campagnolo C-Record group!)
Although there is no real consistency to Rossin frame serial number or engravings. This frame has “K S” and a number that can’t quite be read on the exposed rear left dropout. And the matching fork also has “K S” and “1” written on the fork steerer.
This frame has it all, tapered lugged MAX tubing, ‘fastback’ stays, Rossin ‘R’ fork engravings, stunning paint work!
Size on the bottom bracket is 54

For reference I’m 171cm tall, and this was a perfect fit.
