I bought this frame and fork from Palo Alto Cycles in 1979. It's been in my possession ever since. I built the bike out myself using mostly Campagnolo Nuovo Record mechanicals and a mixture of other higher end parts at the time. The Dark Caramel Imron paint is original and the frame material is steel. When the frame arrived back in the day, a friend of mine who owned a well known and successful local bike shop stopped by to check out the "big dollar" frame - $350+ for a frame alone was big dough in those days. He looked the frame over and snidely cracked "that looks like a $50 Schwinn frame". Fast forward 40+ years and Tom Ritchey forged a world renown cycle brand in his name and these legacy frames are iconic for their beautiful hand finished filleted brazing, functionality and elegant simplicity.

Is there a URL where people can read or see more about your bike?
