Porsche Bike Anyone?
With retro XTR and Cane Creek, wonder how much they were new?

seems that this bike has still the original carbon fiber stems,Posted 2 years ago
there was an oficcial recall for all 2540 fs evo bikes from porsche because
of problems with broken cfk stems,
they changed it for ali stems, the original ones where injection molded carbon fiber…
original price was 2108.-euros with spengle wheels, cane creek ad 10, magura luise brakes,votec gs air quadrat fork and xtr group..
votec bought all the carbon frames, only the ali ones where welded/made by votec…
their ali version was the f7 back then…njee20Subscriber
they were £3k ish new in 99/00. Which was about as much as you could spend on an off the shelf bike at the time
You do not RC, they were far more. We had one of the earlier yellow ones in the shop once. It had massive triple clamps, like 40mm stantions, but only 100mm travel. Forget the exact figure, but it weighed over 40lbs. Complete shit.Posted 2 years agoLesterMember

Not sure of the pricing but I worked in the shop that built them up before sending to dealers as we were near to Porsche HQ and the owners got chatting to some Porsche staff in the local curry house. They supplied bikes FOC for the team too.
The little red hardtail was a decent frame, the full suss as flawed as all the others in the mid/late 90s!Posted 2 years agonjee20Subscriber
This risks getting into a ‘Google off’ versus what we remember, but that would be a total bargain for a full XTR equipped carbon bike 15 years ago…
$10,612 here. Perhaps they were vastly cheaper in Germany? Not like online shopping was quite as prolific back then, but that’s a really really horrendous exchange rate!
Still, we’re all agreed they look/were crap.Posted 2 years ago
porsche had another recall for this bike before the stems because of the votec fork and carbon seatposts…so prices dropped finally ..
(and dropped dramatically in a secret sale for the staff members)
people where joking the only two recalls from porsche are the fs evo bike…
for this reason they changed the manufacturer short time later,
storck bikes,quite similar frame, different specs, acros mamba fork.. all black..and back to high prices
and ..at that time lots of carbon frames broke..just think about the first cannondale raven…dealers where collecting broken frames in bunches to send them back to c..
Still, we’re all agreed they look/were crap.
