Principia RSL SX 2004(?) 57cm

My first venture into roadbikes, let´s just say i was (and still am) in love with the style imposed on my generation during the late 90's and early 21:st century. Air Jordans, G-Shock, Into the Blue and all that stuff. Found it used and somewhat abused, but most of the components got fixed and replaced, including wheels, rear derailleur, shifters and cables. Finally after three years of constant grind the merciless Santiago tarmac took its soul, but not before conquering a few good KOM´s on the San Cristobal cerro, a vuelta around Llanquihue lake with beautiful (active) volcanos, and racing the most classic Chilean amateur races including: 3 Días Vargas, el Clásico de Isla de Maipo and of course the Lo Vazques peregrination (which isn´t really a race). We´ll this sort of is my road curriculum, and i´m sorry to say i´ve developed an allergy to lycra theese past years so i doubt i´ll be coming back to refresh theese memories any more. :(

nice frame that is. i'm not sure but i think that the principia added the serif font in the late '90s, early '00s.

check out my three principias. each from a different era and with a different logo. maybe that helps.
otherwise there are some old catalogues floating around in the web.
