Just started a new project, my most extreme yet. It is a ZIPP (2001, right?) carbon team issue frame from the Dutch national squad.

It appears be in great condition. I didn't get the Zipp rear brake with the frame, but I suppose I can use something similar. The beam appears to be missing a bolt to fix it from the top, but again this shouldn't be to difficult to solve.

I like it. And not because I'm dutch to. What are youre plans with it? What components will be on it? Got a foto of how it looked in 2001? Who rode the frame? And did you buy it from the ex prof? Succes with your project. Knowing you it is going to be great project with a great outcome.
Everything is all right in the end, so if everything is not allright it's not the end

Ooh, Kinesis aluminium forks.

I am guessing this frame is no longer UCI-legal.

From your ebay account, I can say that you always have your hands on good conditions rare beautiful steel bikes but your projects are almost always involving out of the norm frames (wooden frame, aero Ti Litespeed, that weird TT bike from the 90s..)

You sir have a very weird taste! Keep em coming!

Absolutely not. No seat tube, no dice.

Very interesting! Do you have plans on repairing the paint or repainting it altogether?

Please disassemble it and weigh the components:
Frame
Seat cluster
Headset
Fork

2001 isn't the vintage, it's the model name (the 3001 was the update). Wiki says the last frames were produced in '97. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zipp_2001

@Nelus: I plan to build it up with a DA 7400 groupset and an ITM Dual aerobar. I haven't decided on the wheels, but I would prefer to go with Zipp wheels. The previous owner promised to get back to me on the history of the frame as soon as possible.

@Valbrona: It is definitely not UCI-legal.

@gravity: I love steel bikes, but I am absolutely fascinated by vintage aero bike frames and parts.

@prendrefeu: I will get to you on the weighs ASAP.

I think it would be a cool aero road bike setup.

+1, perhaps with a painted to match orange Pro Stealth bar-stem combo and High profile Zipp wheels.
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Put an 808 rear and 404 front on. Possibly use a TT crank. It would look very cool.

There's plenty of period 440's knocking around still; the hubs were a lot naff, but built on something else maybe 8)

950 disc too, now that'd be nice :mrgreen:

440's or 3000's would be great, with or without an early Zipp disc.

Aero road bike? Drop bars would be a complete fail :doh:
