Top quality Sancineto road frame and fork from the 1990s. NOS – New Old Stock – never used. Has never been built up, let alone ridden. This is probably about your last chance to pick up an NOS Columbus MAX frame for a reasonable price!
Made from the boundary-pushing steel of the time, oversized Columbus MAX. MAX tubing is bi-ovalised along the length of the tube, giving a unique and unmistakeable appearance at the lugs. Sancineto were well-known for their attention to detail when finishing their steel frames, something that was lost when the market abruptly switched to aluminium tubing in the mid-’90s.
Frame is very nicely finished in piano-black paint, with chrome rear triangle and half-chrome fork blades. Edges of the chrome have been carefully lined in gold, as have the Sancineto engravings on the seatstay caps and bottom bracket shell. Original MAX sticker on the seat tube in perfect condition. There are a couple of very small paint chips on the fork crown, by the sticker.
No dents or cracks.
We also have the matching Sancineto water bottles, if you ask nicely then we might even throw one in the carton for you.
