Abilita frames were built by Paul Wilkins in Dorset, he was a licenced 753 builder etc. Tubeset of this one is unknown, but the weight and the wall thickness of the seat tube seems to suggest it's a double butted flavour of Reynolds 531, most likely 531.

It's nicely constructed with a race number hanger, neat engraved "Abilita" logo on one of the cable entry ports and a Cinelli spoiler BB shell. The fork is from a Rossin team racing frameset, it's the one shown in the main picture, and is Columbus SLX New. I'll throw in the purple fork from the other photos F. C but I strongly recommend not riding it - it's bonded aluminium and was heated as part of the powder coating when it probably shouldn't have been. Wheels are 105 hubs on Mavic 192 rims.

The components show little sign of any real use, and it rides like a new bike. The eyelets of the rims are a bit crusty but that's a cosmetic issue and doesn't affect riding. Bars and stem are ITM, seatpost is kalloy.

Tyres are continental gators with a good amount of life in them. I've had a few questions about the age of the frame, mainly relating to L'eroica. I don't know the exact year but at a guess, late eighties. It certainly predates 8 speed kit (126mm back end) so I think with some non-aero brake levers fitted you'd probably be good.
