FS: Basso Astra Mystery frameset

(closed)
Greetings!

I'm selling my Basso Astra frameset. Like the title implies, it's a bit of a mystery. It appears to be a custom built frameset for a racer, dating from the early 90's. Though the paintjob matches that of the "Astra" model, there's no Columbus tubeset sticker, and the fork is a custom-sourced Sakae fork, which feels considerably lighter than your typical Columbus fork. The frameset is either a Columbus Nivacrom tubeset (like EL-OS), which the Astra models were built of, or at least SLX. The frameset is super stiff and surprisingly light for its size. The main issue is that there is quite a bit of rust on the top-tube, which is under the paint, which will need to be addressed. I was planning on having this frame sandblasted and building it up with a threadless fork, but I've decided to go in other directions. This is one fast fucking steed that needs a little bit of love! Price is firm.

TT is 57cm (c-c) and ST is 59cm (c-t). BB is Italian, threads clean. Comes with square-taper BB.

I am currently located in Wisconsin and will gladly ship internationally (at the buyer's expense of course).
