Kestrel pioneered all-carbon monocoque frames in 1986. This is my mint condition early 90s road bike. It was originally equiped with the Dura Ace 7400 group set that is still installed. I only updated the botom bracket and crank set to the Dura Ace 7701 series. The 3TTT stem was replaced by a Dura Ace ax and I treated it to a lighter saddle.
It is not the lightest bike around, but super stiff, still very comfortable and I love the merge of the aggressive yet classical geometry and the modern technology.

One of my dreambikes of the

One of my dreambikes of the early nineties. In 1995 a Frenchman passed me while I was on my way to the Tourmalet. I profited from his slipstream for a while and took the opportunity to admire his bike: it was the 650c version with full Campagnolo Record Gruppo. I still remember that bike!

Awesome story
