Kestrel 500 SCI

My main ride. A kestrel 500 SCI, made in the USA. I thought this bike was out of this world when i first saw them made in 90s. Around 2001, i was luck to see this one in the local paper, it was owned by former professional Soccer player who had a big break to join a team in Portugal. I bought the bike from him. Its an awsome ride. I like the missing seat tube, I like the 650 wheels. I like the frame, I like the seating position. I just like everything about it. Whomever designed this bike was ahead of their time and had great eye for style. A true american original bike. For some reason the styling lost its way with the airfoils and KM40 kestrels in the 2000, just my opinion.
