Bontrager Race Lite

Another project... Used to have a dark green Race in the mid 90s, which I sold. Always regretted that. Got a little crazy acquiring Bonty Race frames last year. Second photo shows a blue XL Race, a black Large Race, a dark blue Large Race Lite and a dark green Large Race Lite. Next pics compare my dark green Bontry to my dark green Ibis Mojo. Also included a comparison between orange Bonty (sold) and my Molteni Merckx. Anyway, current plan is to build the dark blue Race Lite with the stuff below.

Bontrager Race Lite in dark blue. A later suspension-corrected frame, size Large. Very good condition.

Fork/Headset:
King and Vicious Cycles fork

Pedals:

Handlebars/Stem:
