Used bike: Atlantis 58 cm

This is one of the originals, serial #AT0076, with the highly sought after pointy lugs, in the popular 58 cm size. In addition to the low serial number and pointy lugwork, this bike also has some distinctive touches not seen on current Atlantis frames - namely a smaller but thicker brass headbadge and the number "2" on the downtube decal. The frameset is in pristine condition except for evidence of racks having been installed on the dropout eyelets. The part spec is likewise impressive and in generally great condition: XTR M900 hubs, XT derailleurs, supercool Shimano cantilevers, American Classic seatpost with Brooks Flyer saddle, Sugino XD double crank with Stronglight 48/34 rings, Dura-Ace bar-end shifters, Dura Ace headset with the logo polished off, Nitto Technomic Deluxe 11cm stem and 48cm Noodle handlebars (taped, twined, and shellacked), and Blackburn Ti cages. With hammered Honjo fenders to finish it off, this bike is absolutely gorgeous.
