I already did some research about the Kondor racing team. The team was operated from 80-83 by Konrad Kotter and was meant to be the first german elite racing team. Actually they even had Dietrich Thurau under contract, but I guess he had already seen his best times back then. Nevertheless, the team was pretty unsuccessful and went bankrupt after only a couple of seasons.
But this ride proves that it was not the bicycles who caused the end of the team. It is a fanatastic piece of craftsmanship and rides beautiful. The frame was manufactured in Italy; I don't know yet where exactly, as information are pretty hard to get.
Please contact me if you have any knowledge about the Kondor Racing team or the place where the frames were actually produced.
