If this bike looks old to you, it is. I built this frame in 1978 and it was my first. I rode it for a few years but it never really rode right so about 16 years ago I removed the rear triangle to go about fixing it. From that point until yesterday it hung from a hook , neglected but not forgotten. I spent a few hours yesterday and a few today and now it rides reasonably well. I'm riding it around without paint just to be sure that it will be worth the cost of powdercoat and clearcoat. I'm shooting for the original color and maybe I can find the original lettering that I used. This frame was made 6 years before I came up with the Rock Lobster name. The original decals said " Routier" which was the name of the street I lived on at the time. Maybe I should call it "Trescony"-the street where I live now.
