This bike was bought on craigslist for $ 500. Although it was missing a few parts, it was still a very undervalued bike at the price. As it turns out, this one was ridden to many wins and possibly a national championship by Bobby Walthour III. Bicycle racers frequently have financial ups and downs that make for the need to purge the herd periodically. That must have been what got this bike into the open market. Today it is owned by someone well aware of the bicycle's heritage. The owner brought # FA-008 by the shop for me to see. Now you see it as well , rescued from the streets of San Fransisco.
