Purchased frame in November 2008 on ebay for two hundred dollars. The geometry is rather lively, with a relatively short top tube (57 ctc) on a tall 65cm frame. The ride is exciting, responsive, a good hill climber as far as I can judge.
But in all respect it is an orphan, a bike without its true identity until I get around to collect a complete Zeus Gruppo to hang on it...

Here's a rundown of links, info and tidbits I've been able to pick about Razesa:

About my frame, go to this post on Bike Forums

Razesa is still in business, but their current line-up looks nothing like mine.

From Classic Rendezvous: "Razesa produced the high end framesets for Zeus toward the end of Zeus's lifespan.....some of the high end frames in the late 70s to early 80s. As recently as the 1992 or 93 Tour Du Pont, the Spanish Amaya team rode white Razesa bicycles that were very lightweight and nice."

Also the spanish multiple Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain rode a Razesa on his first victorious Tour, before he switched to Pinarello. As far as I can see, he also opted for a Campagnolo group for his bike. Maybe this was after Zeus faded into obscurity (91?).

Razesa praise, in the words of Bobke Strut: "Aesthetically, this is probably the favorite of any bike I've ever owned. The iridescent blue paint, the chrome, the fastback stays--that's major league suave style. Razesa is a Spanish bike with quite a pedigree--Pedro Delgado and Miguel Indurain rode Razesas early in their pro careers."
