SEROTTA Nova Special X (1986/1987) road bike - Grey/Red/Black color scheme (I call it the SLAYER color palette)

One of Serotta's early production models, this Nova Special X still rides like a dream. Columbus SLX tubing is light as heck and makes city riding a breeze. Bike is easy to lift with one arm.

Some paint chips on top coat, but if you were scared of some patina you wouldn't be looking for old school Serotta bikes! One top tube cable guide has a small chunk missing - otherwise in really great shape!

Shimano Groupset is worth $600 (eBay) on it's own if you wanted to part the beast out (please don't).

Asking $800 (or compelling trade for Dura Ace 7400 gear) - bike season is around the corner!

FULL Shimano 600 Tri-Color (2nd gen) group:
Derailleurs (Front & Back)
Brake lever/shifters (Brifters)
Dual caliper brakes (stop on a dime!)
Cranks
Hubs (laced to MAVIC wheels)
Aero Seatpost

Other highlights:
8 speed casette, new
Selle Italia "Turbo" black leather seat
Cables, cable housing (brakes & shifters)
New bar tape (black & red)
Two water bottle cages
Sakae anatomic bend handlebars
