Somec Elite SLX 56cm
Candy apple red metallic steel road racing frame, handmade of Columbus SLX tubing. Drilled and slotted head lugs, engraved ‘Somec’ seat cluster with ‘fastback’ stay tops. Highly detailed decals in white and black, top tube decals have gold outlines and prancing horse logo. Fittings for two water bottle cages. Chrome plated braze-on for front derailleur. Aerodynamically positioned shifter levers attach to unique and distinctive Somec-designed aluminum fitting mated with a special braze-on fitment on the inner upper face of the down tube. Paired with a Somec fork with an integrated semi-sloping crown with detailed engraving. White fork upper fades to candy red, hand striped division between chromed three quarter blades. 

Never built or used, only fault is a minor paint blemish to front brake mounting face of fork crown, which won’t be very visible once a brake caliper has been fitted.
